Got a question? Stuck on something? Can't figure out why your query isn't working? Go ahead and create a new topic so people can see what you're looking for. Got an answer to someone's conundrum? Go ahead and post it! I'm hoping this will become more of a community of people with an interest in syndicating information (and making use of syndicated information) than just me answering questions.
In the meantime, here are some links to get you started. You can find the relevant specifications here:
Atom Syndication Format 1.0 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4287.txt)
Atom Publishing Protocol draft 14 (March 4, 2007)
RSS 2.0 (http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/tech/rss)
RSS 1.0 (http://web.resource.org/rss/1.0/spec)
RSS 0.92 (http://backend.userland.com/rss092)
RSS 0.91 (http://my.netscape.com/publish/formats/rss-spec-0.91.html)
RSS 0.90 (http://web.archive.org/web/20010413111234/http:/my.netscape.com/publish/help/quickstart.html)
You can also find a lot of great intro material here on developerWorks. Check out:

Getting to know the Atom Publishing Protocol,

Part 2: http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/xml/library/x-atompp2/

And of course, what forum about feeds would be complete without, well, it's own feed? You can subscribe to the RSS feed for this forum here: http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/dw_forum_rss.jsp?forum=1087&full=true
I'd also like to hear from you if you've got an innovative new use for Atom or RSS, or an implementation you're finding useful.
Thanks for stopping by ...
