NAME ^

rpm2rss - create an rss feed out of a set of rpms

SYNOPSIS ^

  rpm2rss -o mdk10.2.xml *rpm

DESCRIPTION ^

The intent of the rpm2rss program was to make it really easy to have an rss feed off of the various rpm repositories that I contribute to. This lets other people easily see what is being released and when, and keeps me from having to send out email reminders and the like.

It also reduces the work effort, as nearly every bit of information I'd put into an RSS feed already is in the rpm file somewhere. By using the MD5 hash for guid, and the BUILDTIME for the publish time, I get a pretty accurate, and unique, interleaving of entries.

BUGS ^

None know, but see TODO list for things not done yet.
