PaceBasicAtomID


Abstract

Better characterize the requirements around atom:id

Status

Open

Rationale

Capture consensus from the mailing-list and several other Paces; the chief sources are mailing list contributions from [WWW]Dare Obasanjo and [WWW]Tim Bray.

Proposal

Change sections 4.2.6 and 5.5 of the format specification to read:

4.2.6 "atom:id" Element

5.5 "atom:id" Element

Impacts

Slightly increases complexity of generating atom feeds and entries since an identifier other than permalink must be created for each feed and entry.

Significantly increases the ability of feed aggregators and other atom processors to detect and manage new atom entries and feeds.
