James Henstridge: As far as unique identifiers for feed entries, it would be better to use the revision IDs ... This way twp branches that contain the same revision in their mainline history will get the same ID.
This makes a lot of sense, and actually helps solve a real problem for me. If everybody who is contributing to Venus maintained a feed, I could build a consolidated feed of everybody’s changes, and the act of people pulling changes from each other wouldn’t create duplicate entries.
Of course, I would create the consolidated feed using Venus. I’m sure that Joe Gregorio would approve.
Those that wish to pick up this change can do so from my branch.
