LiveJournal FOAF file support

Posted 19 September 2010 in listparser

I'm really pleased to announce that, after reporting a LiveJournal bug over a year ago, the one-word patch - strangely attributed to another user - will soon be running live on the site! In celebration, I've started patching listparser to support LiveJournal FOAF files. My hope is that feed readers using listparser will allow users to subscribe to their friends list using their FOAF file.

I expect to release a new version soon, so be on the lookout!

P.S. - I may have found another bug in the LiveJournal code, how exciting is that?

UPDATED : I've reported the bug. I hope it gets fixed, and that this time they credit the fix to me instead of the intermediary support guy.
