For those reading this weblog who don’t have a clue what the traffic here over the past few days has meant, I offer this clarification.
Over on the bloggerDev mailing list, there has been talk about “Really Simple Discovery” and implementations were quick in arriving. Some people looked at RSD and said “Why can’t this be done in WSIL?” but none of those people actually implemented code. And, in fact it is going to take more work to get something like RSD working in WSIL. An explanation of the xmlrpc:// url scheme has to be written up. Documentation for using WSIL for this purpose has to be clarified. etc.
That’s what’s going on.
