The Atom Publishing Protocol has entered Last Call.

There were days when I doubted we'd ever make it this far.

But is it ready for RFC status yet, you think? I believe there has been so many issues brought up lately that it should be pushed back and worked on for at least one more month. Do you disagree?

Asbjørn,

I disagree. If you look carefully at the mailing list you will see that the 'issues' fall into two main categories:

  1. Editorial nits ( things that, if changed, might make the spec easier to read or understand, but don't actually change the operation. )
  2. James Snell

Now I disagree. You are mostly right, but there are two real issues, one of them raised by Elliotte and the other by you: the CSV content model of app:accept and the ordering of entries by app:edit rather than atom:updated.

Aristotle,

True, those don't fit into my categorization, but I believe both of those are issues that can be fixed as part of Last Call.
