Patch by vince spicer <firstname.lastname@example.org> for RSS2 fields for feedgenerator
Applied in 7208d5b73394
Patch is buggy. It sets 'generator' and 'source' at the top level of the feed, but tries to write them at the item level where they don't exist. Which level are they supposed to be at?
Patch will be lost with impending upgrade to Django feedgenerator. It can't be re-applied until we determine whether the properties are supposed to be at the top level or item level.
I could write a patch for rss2 to handle content tag. This tag is very handy and can support html/xml inside.
What would it do?
the content tag, (take a look bitbucket or githubs atom feeds ) could handle some extra html content, i was thinking to make the Atom feed capable of filling this tag with feed.add_item().
Edit: o man got it all wrong !
it's not the RssFeed that I'm talking about but atom. Sorry fot that.
OK, I opened another ticket for it: #35. This ticket is specifically for the "generator" and "content" tags. Do you know about them, what they should be?
I meant "generator" and "source" tags.
Sorry about the confusion, yeah that patch wasn't really valid.
Generator is toplevel and source is per item. http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/rss/rss.html
I fixed and patched here.
