More fun with RSS, rpm2rss

I just pushed out version 0.2 of rpm2rss, which I need to announce on FreshMeat still.

This is an idea I came up with last month, as I maintain a number of Mandriva RPMs in a number of locations. Honestly, most of the time I just push them out there, and hope other people figure out what I pushed, but that's a bad solution.

All this program does is take a couple of well known CPAN modules, RPM2, XML::RSS, and AppConfig (for config file parsing), and brings them all together, with a nice interface and man page. However, it means I can now run this under cron control on my systems, and not have to think about it any more. An example output feed can be found here. Given that I already have 65 URL hits, and 4 subscriptions to the project on FreshMeat, it seems like other people are interested in it as well.

I still need to get up the website listed in the man page of the package, and remerge in my tuxplus stuff to that, but that should be done today.
