We had a little online Atom Protocol interop session today, via IRC and servers scattered here and there about the globe. I got mod_atom to work with Apache Abdera and Windows Live Writer. With a couple of little glitches in each case, fixed on the spot (that’s what the session is for), we had 100% squeaky-clean interop. Earth to client toolmakers: pay attention, or you’re gonna be eating WLW’s dust.
Here’s an out-take from the IRC, jcheng is Joe Cheng of Microsoft, who works on WLW.
twbray: boy, if a few more internet protocols got this kind of interop testing before they product shipped, we'd all be in immensely less pain.
