#486 closed defect (fixed)

timeline rss feed does not validate on http://www.feedvalidator.org

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: daniel
Priority: high Milestone: 0.8
Component: general Version: 0.7
Severity: critical Keywords: rss xml

I get the following errors using 0.7.1.pre:

  • author must include an email address: <author>appel</author>
  • pubDate must be an RFC-822 date: <pubDate>to, 27 maj 2004 13:45:04 GMT</pubDate>
  • XML Parsing error: <unknown>:577:19: not well-formed (invalid token): <pubDate>s< 23 maj 2004 11:00:31 GMT</pubDate>

The date errors might be because the locale on my computer is set to swedish, I guess dates in swedish is not allowed in rss? The e-mail thing I'm not sure how to fix since one is not required to enter one when using trac.

Well spotted, and thanks for the validation report. I'm looking into this shortly.

Fixed in [803].

RSS feeds now validate properly on http://www.feedvalidator.org/ . The 'author' element in RSS 2.0 is really dumb. Possibly, we should incorporate dc: for metatada.
