When Good Feeds Do Bad Things 2010-02-27 23:48:39
You might notice things have gotten strange from time to time in the last week or so. The VersionTracker feed seems to frequently revert back to August 2009 for some strange reason. There's nothing we can do about that, but MacUpdate is also having problems at the same time that we can tackle. Currently, their detailed listing of Bean is not valid XML, and that makes the parser fail on all new releases until the erroneous item drops off the list. It has happened before with BashFlash last week, but we wrote it off as an isolated incident. Now, to keep the Mac software updates timely and reduce the chance that more items are lost, we're going in to manually correct/add the bad listings. They'll be coming out in the Subsume feed until the MacUpdate feed gets fixed.
