RFC 5023 - The Atom Publishing Protocol

Joe Gregorio

The Atom Publishing Protocol has finally been published as RFC 5023.


Just about a month shy of five years since the first publication of RESTLog. What a long strange trip it's been. RFC's don't have dedication sections. If they did I would have dedicated it to my loving wife who has endured my strange - and mostly unpaid - obsession for the past five years. This post will have to do. Thanks.

Congratulations Joe!

It's hard for those of us who didn't sweat to appreciate the work, but I am sure it must have been quite a commitment. Thanks for taking the time out of your life to help the rest of us by working towards this standard.

Someone should tell Dare Obasanjo that there is a finished standard for him to find fault with. Only kidding!

Another hearty congratulations, Joe! I hope I'll find enough tuits to build an implementation. Is there going to be an interoperability test or reference implementation? -Vince

Look on my projects page for both client and server implementations I've done. An interop session was held back in April. The projects listed for that interop are a good place to look for other client and server implementations. I hope we can do more interop sessions in the future.
