Feed Paging and Archiving
Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <email@example.com>, RFC Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Feed Paging and Archiving' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Feed Paging and Archiving ' <draft-nottingham-atompub-feed-history-12.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document has been reviewed in the IETF but is not the product of an IETF Working Group. The IESG contact person is Lisa Dusseault. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-nottingham-atompub-feed-history-12.txt
Technical Summary This document is an important improvement on RFC4287, adding the ability to download only part of a published Atom feed at a time. Many servers already provide only part of a feed (e.g. a blog with hundreds of archived entries) when clients request the feed itself, and the information about how to get the rest of the feed is *simply not there* with existing standards (or if there, human-readable only). Working Group Summary Although this is not a WG document, it was reviewed by the members of the AtomPub WG. There was no significant dissent, and there was definitely support for implementing it. It's already implemented in Apache Abdera project. Protocol Quality Lisa Dusseault reviewed for the IESG.
