in reply to XML::RSS and RSS2 with custom namespaces

Conicidently I was just researching how to do itunes podcasts/rss feeds using perl, so I was pleased to see this node.

Based on the suggestions in this node, I have modified XML::RSS, I can send you my working copy if you want...

Currently creating @ a non accessably admin system
Outputting @ http://downloads.lsrfm.com/podcastrss/podcasts.xml

Update: BTW it is Pure perl so wont need complilation, tho you might need the prerequisies, Carp, XML::Parser, HTML::Entities

    Indeed, I had to hack something up myself, I was trying not to modify the XML::RSS anymore than I needed to. I wanted to Sub-class it, but the method I wanted to override is not called as a method. It looks like Ask is slowly OOing the module, but hadn't gotten to that method call.

    Some people have submitted patches but no one seems to have submitted patches + tests. I would like to see what you did, and combined with what others have done and my own hacks, maybe we can come up with some patches w/ tests that are acceptable.
