Good to hear, Erkki! :)

I'll say:  GREAT to hear :)

Nice. When will it be in Orbit? It would be great if whoever is doing
the packaging (you or Mik Kersten?) could do it similarly to how
commons-net is done in Orbit -- include source code so that when
developing using the bundle, sources would be instantly attached.

I'm pretty sure Mylar is taking care of this, you'll have to get in
touch with Mik.

Yes, my understanding Mylar will be/is moving httpclient 3.0.1 to Orbit. Also for everyone's info I've already submitted a CQ to use httpclient 3.0.1 in ECF: whatever form is available (i.e. jar now...but Orbit bundle as soon as is available)

I've been meaning to take a peek at that. Does it define a new API or
implement some existing ECF API?

It currently implements the datashare APIs.

That's right. For everyone's info, this RSS provider also implements the Microsoft RSS SSE protocol (to provide support for merging/synchronization on RSS...see:

via the ECF IMergeableChannelContainerAdapter (in org.eclipse.ecf.datashare plugin, org.eclipse.ecf.datashare.mergeable package).

I'm not familiar with RSS
technicalities, but maybe it could also implement Bulletin Board api?

This might be possible. I guess with the whole SSE "chanage
management/synchronization", I guess it's similar in a way to posting
a new reply to a message board. I mean, when new news comes out,
that's like a new thread, so I guess this might work. If the scope
expands I guess you might want to change the name of your API, Erkki.

Although I'm not sure how at this moment, I do think that RSS SSE and message board api could be combined. RSS SSE is really for synchronizing replicated state (via RSS) where the bulletin board API is more for accessing a server-based state structured in a particular way (bbs, threads, topics, etc). That's my current understanding anyway. I think they are potentially complimentary.
