Anybody want a code challenge?

I'd like a script,function,method where I can pass it an array of unix timestamps and have it hand back an array of days of the week marking as true the days this podcast publishes episodes on.

Like:

findPublishDays([1602482305, 1602238118, ...])

Might return: { 0: true, 1: false, 2: false, 3: false, 4: true, 5: false, 6: false }

Where index 0 is Sunday. This would indicate that the podcast updates on Sunday and Thursday.

If no pattern is found, return false.

@martin Is there a reason the podfriend widget only goes to 20 episodes? I'd love to have flexibility for more.

Namespace change:

"podcast:email"

...is now:

"podcast:emailVerification"

This makes the intent unambiguous.

@hypercatcher Just FYI - at least on an Android phone, you can just visit this website on your phone and click "add to my desktop" - it works as flawlessly as any app.

@adam I also finally sent out an update to the windows app, it should install automagically!

- This namespace has to be a living standard that is never fully “finalized”. We have to be able to add new tags to it 5 years from now if the industry changes. Otherwise this is a waste of time.

- Doing it in phases gives us the stability to implement all the tags in a closed phase with confidence. It also spurs people to speak up and get their ideas expressed in a timely fashion during the open period.

- Each phase will go this way. The phase 1 tags are here: github.com/Podcastindex-org/po

Some notes on the namespace:

- Lots of tweaks and suggestions added yesterday. Look at the commit list to see.

- We’re going to do this in “phases” with phase 1 open right now. Solid suggestions with plenty of consensus get put in phase 1. At some point in the next week or so I will announce the closing date of phase 1 (30 days out from then). On the closing date, phase 1 tags will be formalized and we will start working on phase 2.

@adam @dave thanks for the kind words about Podverse on Podcasting 2.0 😄 my mom was thrilled when I shared the clip with her this morning.

FYI anyone can create clips using Podverse, you just need to sign up with an email (we require it to help control spam).

Thanks again and I’ll do my best to support PI’s mission of keeping podcasting an open platform for free speech.

It's quite exciting that there's a spec for additional tags. More exciting that many people have been talking about this for years but have failed to spend the time to put up a straw man, as @dave has done. In a month we've seen more innovation in this space than the last ten years. Bravo to Dave and @adam .

To anyone proposing changes to the podcast namespace spec, please see @jamescridland issue he just filed:

github.com/Podcastindex-org/po

It is specific, thorough and gives detailed examples of the exact changes being proposed.

If you propose changes please follow this model and it’ll make it easy for me to incorporate them.

Or just do a pull request. That’s always an option. :-)

I just renamed the namespace to just be "podcast" instead of "podcastindex".

Introducing the Podcastindex namespace for RSS:

Will discuss on the show today.

Let's move things forward or die trying. 😃

@martin Are the share links still in the app? The menu doesn't seem to open anymore. Using windows PWA on desktop

Which 3 tags did @Todd_Blubrry want? Wasn't one of them captions?

BTW, don't expect stability on images.podcastindex.org over the next few days. It'll go up and down as I change configurations, expand volumes, etc to get everything working right.

I'll let you guys know when I think it's stable enough to start using.

Moved the image server to dallas last night and switched everything over. It's been filling in slowly but I need to speed it up. Going to grab a script I use for something similar out of the Freedom Controller and re-tool it to pull 10 images at a time so we can bake this cake a little quicker.

I created a small article about Podcast Index on Wikipedia (currently pending review) to get the ball rolling:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Po

I deliberately kept it short, so that more people can pitch in over time.
