I'm here ;-)
http://www.newsisfree.com/sources/changes/ for an HTML rendering
http://www.newsisfree.com/HPE/xml/changes.xml for the XML
(no RSS, will do if people want it)
It's a little different from the weblogs.com XML file (hence the
different version number). Each entry has three extra fields:
- id: the id of the feed on NewsIsFree
- s8: the id of the feed on Syndic8 (0 if no match is recorded in
- decay: the date of the olddest item for that feed in our database.
It's do be computed in the same way as the "when" date (i.e.
convert file update field to seconds, substract the value of the
field for the feed) (this isn't clear is it ? ;-). That field is
used by Daypop to clean it's index when our links die.
