Issue status update for 
Post a follow up: 

 Project:      Drupal
 Version:      cvs
 Component:    aggregator.module
 Category:     feature requests
 Priority:     normal
 Assigned to:  Anonymous
 Reported by:  Capnj
 Updated by:   Prometheus6
-Status:       active
+Status:       patch
 Attachment:   http://drupal.org/files/issues/magpie_aggregator.zip (7.87 KB)

A patch would require the Magpie include files and wholly restructures
the way the feeds are parsed...the Magpie code would handle all the
feeds, not just Atom.

That said, the attached zip file has the necessary includes and a patch
to CVS.

I've seen mention elsewhere on drupal.org but don't see a feature
request, so here goes.
The news aggregator is a great piece of Drupal as far as I'm concerned
and I'd sure like to see it read all the sources out there, have the
'blog this' function, and also have a tool for browsers to generate a
blog entry from a web page (like MT had).

Is that a big enough request?   LOL

Thanks for all that everyone does here. Great stuff!

RSS 2.0 feeds should work in 4.5.0 and earlier.

I've hacked Magpie [1] support into the Drupal aggregator, so it can
support Atom.  If you have a Drupal site and want the code, you can get
it from http://george.hotelling.net/projects/magpie-aggregator-4.5.2.tgz

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to create a patch or what, but I needed
this for ArborBlogs.com [3] and figured some other people would benefit
from it.

Very nice.

I hacked aggregator.module for 4.6 using your module as a guide...well,
frankly by ripping out great chunks of code for my use.

Can someone roll a patch for this? Would be a good addition for 4.7 now
that Atom is at 1.0.
