What is PaSS

PaSS is a Web content syndication format based on its sister standard RSS.

PaSS is an acronym for Portable and Simple Syndication. RSS stands for Really Simply Syndication and RDF Site Summary.

PaSS is a dialect of XML and is based on RSS 2.0. All documents containing PaSS must conform to the XML 1.0 specification, as published on the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) website.

RSS 2.0 does not have the ability to include its elements in other XML formats through a namespace. PaSS allows RSS 2.0 elements to exist as vocabularies in other XML documents. PaSS is not an XML file format.

PaSS is being proposed by DeveloperDude.
