Dos and Don'ts of diary syndication
We should have, I think I have said before, have a nice
front-page article about how to go about syndicating your
RSS Feed to Advogato, and why it is one's best interests to
follow the advice or not syndicate at all. I should write
it, shouldn't I? But...
...I've not had a lot of appetite to contribute to Advogato in
the last few months, though. I generally feel that there
are too many things broken around here, and if one of the
strengths of Advogato is that it can be and is run by the
participants, and not the benevolent dictator, on the other
hand that means that there is great inertia standing in the
way of improving things.
The impetus for this post comes from a couple of mindcrime's recent posts. Kudos to
mindcrime for the progress with Project Shelley, but posting
diary entries with more than ten large screenshots in them
is not the kind of syndication that recentlog should be
receiving. I don't want to drop mindcrime's output from my
view of recentlog, but equally, I don't want to have this
kind of material there.
