extending rss

[ #26093 ]
so I end up talking to don macaskill last night about an idea that chris and I bounced around a few months ago...

rss ought to include some official tag for related links, both on a global level and a per-item level. the idea stemmed from standard blogs that have "people I'm reading" links in their page that need to be scraped by hand by feed aggregators - everyone would be far better off if those kind of links were official elements in the feed itself... or so our theory goes.

  • Except RSS 2.0 is in torpor now and will never change.

    You could of course specify an extension element in a new namespace. Then you’d have to go through the trouble of convincing a lot of people to support your extension.

    Or maybe you just want Atom [atomenabled.org], where <link rel="related" href="http://example.com/" /> is part of the spec out of the box.
