Proposal: Package feed should have static ids for entries.

Oct 7, 2010 at 11:47 AM

Now package feeds use random GUID for entry id ( /entry/id ). Per atom syndication specification it should identify entry or feed. Of course, with random guid it fails to achieve this goal.

Static ids could have some practical benefits. For example most RSS readers use id to ensure that entry was read. So you will be able to subscribe to package feed with regular RSS reader and see what is new, what was updated and so on. Also local cache should benefit from these ids.

The current feed is temporary and is we're currently moving it to odata so this will be fixed. Thanks for the input.
