-^This package does not exist yet, but when it does it will only be available for bitweaver R2^
-!!!The Basic Idea
-See: [http://www.reblog.org/]
+^__NOTE: This package is only be available for bitweaver R2 and is in BETA__ There may be future schema changes, which will be added to the ((SchemaChangelog|R2 Schema Changelog)).^
-!Features Overview
-!!Feed Items List Display Options
-* Display As List of Links To Source Site Pages (This is same as normal rss feed display)
-* Display As List of Links To Feed Description Pages On BW Site
-+ These pages would have link to source site
-+ No Comments - these would not be content
-+ Disappear with time - available as most recent posts
-+ Not a great idea as links could break or page content could change with time as feed is updated
-* Display As List of Links To ReBlogged Description Pages
-+ Feed items stored as content (perhaps Blog Post content)
+The Reblog Package is an RSS feed aggregator. You use it to parse the items of RSS feeds and add the content to your site as blog posts. The package functions as a service to the BlogsPackage adding feed and item information to the blog post. When items from a feed are reblogged, the resulting blog post page will include a link back to the source webpage, as well as site and author information. Once an item is ReBlogged it is Liberty Content, which means it has full access to all Liberty services like comments, search, tagging etc. You can also re-edit any reblogged item to add any comments into the blog post as you may see fit. ReBlog Package is a good tool for those looking to create aggregation sites, augment their site with content from other sites, or provide commentary on other website's content.
-!!Feed Content Display
-* Display Feed Item Content as temporary content - not saved, expires as feed updates
-* Display Feed Item Content as stored liberty content (perhaps Blog Post content)
+!Installation instructions
+!!!!Get The Code
+You can get ReBlog from cvs by checking out _bit_reblog
-Map feed source id to reblog content id (for saved content)
-Map feed source id to user content id (for more expanded profile of feed source)
-Display TPL adds link to source feed (used if reblog content is stored as blog post content)
+ReBlog requires you have BlogsPackage installed.
-Cron Job needed to routinely check feeds and update the site.
+The feature ''Auto Reblog'', which checks feeds for new items routinely, requires you install a cron job. Please see comments at the top of the reblog/update_feeds.php file for further instruction.
-!!Build Off Packages or Build New?
-Would it make sense to build off the RSS package or to build rss feed stuff new - might make more sense to build new as it makes it neater to maintain and may be required for toggling the list features outlined above.
-Advantage of using Blogs Package is we could use all that good stuff, like author, publish date, promoting ReBlogged Content into a blog.
+!!!!Near Term
+* Add allow or disallow comments for feeds, so that comments on feed items can be auto enabled if desired
+* store geo data when it is available and when a site has Geo package installed.
+* Display feed items and show if they have been reblogged or not - with an option for admin to reblog them with a single click.
-How prevent duplicate storage of feed items?
+!!!!Long Term
+* ReBlog current can only save content to the blogs package. A future goal for the package would be to enable it to save RSS content to other packages as well, on a per feed basis. For example it would be nice to save Flickr feed content to Fisheye.
+Reblog use SimplePie to parse feeds: [http://simplepie.org]
+This package was inspired by: [http://www.reblog.org/]
+This package is also similar to: [http://drupal.org/node/289|Drupal Aggregator]
