I think it would be helpful to have a discussion about cryptocoin URIs in the <podcast:funding> tag. Some coins actually have registered URI schemes; perhaps we can add guidance for podcasters and app developers regarding their use in place of regular web URLs on this tag?
Hot namespace talk!
Congrats on over 10% adoption everyone!
@emil sorry I didn't get to any of your responses to my Podcast Generator PRs on the weekend, but I'm going to take care of them as best I can this evening -0500.
@dave if a feed has both <title> _and_ <itunes:title> for an episode, which one does the indexer pick?
Geek News Central talking about Podcast Index & Podcasting 2.0 atm.
It irks me to no end to hear them refer to exclusive Spotify shows as "podcasts". Those are NOT podcasts.
AntennaPod releases v2.1.1 with PodcastIndex Search!
TIL that XML namespace identifiers are IRIs, not URIs! That is, Internationalized Resource Identifiers, which allow most Unicode characters as opposed to URIs which are restricted to a subset of ASCII. They are essentially otherwise the same, though, so I'm going to keep saying URI even when discussing IRIs.
Podcasting 2.0 for December 12th 2020 Episode 15: We're with the Band! -- Adam & Dave discuss the week's developments on podcastindex.org - Jon Buda and Justin Jackson from Fireside.FM join the board meeting as well http://l.curry.com/fma
@dave I saw the Github discussion about referencing the namespace. I'm offering a spec change that gives us a cleaner shorter namespace URI and improved guidance on the prefix based on the conversation: https://github.com/Podcastindex-org/podcast-namespace/pull/143
Podcast Generator's reliance on file mdate metadata to determine episode order is really easy to fuck up. Simply making hosting changes for your site could put everything out of order. So my next task is going to be adding proper season/episode support.
Now, Apple has tags for season and episode, but they're weak compared to proposals put forward for the podcast namespace. However those are just proposals! Should I write both now, or just Apple's tags and wait for ours to be finalized?
I've just done some work that lets someone using Podcast Generator for their show to add their feed to the Index via the add/byfeedurl endpoint. Next step will be adding a pinger that fires when episodes are added or updated.
No idea if my work will ever actually be integrated into Podcast Generator, but it'll at least be there. I'm maintaining an integration branch for all my completed PG work: https://github.com/coldacid/PodcastGenerator/tree/integration
That branch doesn't have the PI work yet but it'll end up there.
Correction: It uses the media file's mtime, not the sidecar file.
Turns out that Podcast Generator uses the mtime of an episode's sidecar file to determine the publish time of the episode. Because of moving things around to pull the #RareEncounter site from Git, everything went out of wack this morning with the RSS feed and the website itself.
Thank goodness that Podcast Index keeps track of the original publish time for episodes, so I was able to fix up the file timestamps!
