I became somewhat frustrated with the builtin WordPress RSS importer, so I built my own. It's based on Magpie RSS and therefore is more able to cope with the nuances of XML than the builtin importer. What is the best way to contribute this back to the community?
The new importer is designed to aid a podcaster who might be using a homebrew RSS source to migrate over to WordPress. I can cope with any data-source that MagpieRSS can cope with. I've not yet tested it with atom.
