rss-dev Group Arguing Over RDF Compliance in RSS 1.0

The RSS 1.0 Specification Working Group (also known as rss-dev) has been extremely active since it started ten days ago. We have not been able to keep up with the flow of messages, so we were a bit surprised to find out that the source of the activity is a dispute about how strictly to comply with the RDF specification.

Clearly, the issues being brought up right now are technical and beyond the scope of our knowledge (in terms of the XML that CTDATA has actually implemented to date). We are considering downloading the version of the XML::RSS Perl module that is compatible with the proposed RSS 1.0 specification and comparing it to the previous version which is compliant with RSS 0.91.
