Sometimes it feels like a family. What happened was, we’re having all
this angst over in
about well-formedness and media types and the fact that RSS is usually served
“wrong” and the problems this causes. Well, before too much longer, there
are going to be a lot of Web resources named
the-other.atom being dished out by
Web Servers everywhere, and by default those servers are gonna look at the
names and say “Dot-atom what? Yer
text/plain, punk.” So I
Greg Stein of Apache and Google, and
he had a pow-wow and
back I've gone ahead and done this: the application/atom+xml (for .atom)
type will appear in our next releases (Apache 1.3.32 and Apache
2.0.51), whenever those come out.
Well, Apache’s not the only server out there, so I wrote off to
Scoble and said “Here’s the problem,
how about IIS?”. So Scoble did some digging and got routed to
Thomas Deml, lead program manager on IIS, and I saw a forwarded email saying
The change goes into Win2K3, SP1.
Now if we could sort out the rest of the Internet’s issues that
smoothly... anyhow, thanks guys.
