Bug#470388: ITP: libxml-rss-simplegen-perl -- A Perl module for easily writing RSS files

Package: wnpp
Owner: Axel Beckert <abe@deuxchevaux.org>
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : libxml-rss-simplegen-perl
  Version         : 11.11
  Upstream Author : Sean M. Burke <sburke@cpan.org>
* URL or Web page : http://search.cpan.org/dist/XML-RSS-SimpleGen/

  Description     : A Perl module for easily writing RSS files

This module is for writing RSS files, simply. It transparently handles
all the unpleasant details of RSS, like proper XML escaping, and also
has a good number of Do-What-I-Mean features, like not changing the
modtime on a written-out RSS file if the file content hasn't changed,
and like automatically removing any HTML tags from content you might
pass in.

This module isn't meant to have the full expressive power of RSS;
instead, it provides functions that are most commonly needed by
RSS-writing programs.
