Doh! Left myself wide open to that one, didn't I? OK, how about this for
an approach? Some XeNTist needs to set up a stable URL for the latest
date-sorted list of posts, and make the archives XML well formed
(ie. XHTML), then we should be able to write XSLT that'll scrape the
archives and output various formats...
Or I could just hack a screenscraper in Perl. Actually I just did but
it's ugly and (for some reason - will fiddle more later) rather slow.
(no guarantees -- flakey, buggy, slow etc and doesn't track
URL for current month)
So anyway we still need a URL, eg. http://xent.com/latest/date.html
that'll always return a list of recent posts by date.
Would be much nicer to do this in XSLT though maybe that's something
better done as a patch to hypermail...
