RE the url updates, after rereading and looking around a bit I've
figured out what is being requested. I'm attaching a patch which adds
update_120() which has the intention of updating url alias' for blog
urls. I haven't tested it though.

The original patch was changed to HTML somehow/somewhere that I cannot
determine. Apologies. The second patch seems fine.

The blog module creates user blog feed urls of the form
"blog/feed/[UID]" while taxonomy follows the new url form of

It seems that this should be changed to the new form of
"blog/[UID]/feed" and the attached patch makes this change.

Of course changing this will cause existing feed urls to become invalid
so legacy.module is also patched to redirect old style urls.

Legacy is modified as follows.

"/blog/feed/52" will redirect to "/blog/52/feed"


"blog/feed" will not redirect

This patch looks corrupts and contains HTML code.

Note that for URL changes, we should preferably add an update similar to
update_97() and update_98(), which updated the URL aliases. Using an old
alias will end you up in legacy.module, which does a drupal_goto() to a
non-Clean url, which is not very desirable.

RE the patch, it looks fine when I browse the link. It contains no
markup, other than the already existing "link" tag which the patch
modifies. Should I resubmit?

RE url changes, I am not really familiar with legacy.module and only
threw that change in at the last minute when contemplating how to deal
with the url change. It is not clear to me what you're suggesting with
update_97() so you'll have to explain or post an update yourself.

Resubmitting same patch with a different filename (in case the problem
is with the attachment system).
