A package for reblogging rss feed content

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/

Some initial thoughts

Will probably have some dependencies: BlogsPackage, RSSPackage

Advantage of using Blogs Package is we could use all that good stuff.
Disadvantage would we could not store stuff like "Source Link" for each rss item - though we could maybe attach that as a "reblog service"

Likely Process

  • Needs to know feed source - use RSS feed module table to get feed_id
  • Generate a user id for the feed source - for author ownership
(From this we can fully search for anything from that feed as user_id and automatically generate blog posts)
  • Check feed routinely, not just on page requests - some sort of cron job?
  • Get Parsed Feed
  • Get earlist date in feed
  • Get List of Liberty Content matching on user_id since that date inclusive
  • Check Parsed Feed titles against titles from Liberty Content
  • If title is new push that item into Liberty Content (probably as a blog post)

Other Desirable Options

  • Make reblogging automatic or optional on feeds - so either all posts can be reblogged automatically or so that someone can manually select which posts to reblog
