RDF Fetching

[ #3850 ]
I have been working on a tool that runs out of cron to fetch the RDF/RSS news feeds from various sites at a given time each hour to a common directory. This will make it, so products like PHPWebLog don't flood sites (like slashdot) by fetching the news feeds over and over again. Also for those of use that have multiple sites running on the same physical box, can run this one instance for the physical box and all the websites can use which ever feeds they want to.
The basic program works, I am testing it now. I have the following items that I need to do before I can release it.

admin tool to turn on/off fetching of news feeds

man page

installation howto

debian packaging

.tar.gz package
Currently I do not have a website/page up for the program but I will in the future. Anyone that wants to test this program, please email me at "scott at sboss dot net" (you know how to translate the email address :> ).
