The Atom format has gotten through last call, as Tim Bray reports. Tim gives a good overview of one niggling issue, that of duplicate entries - should we allow duplicate entries in Atom feeds or not? Think before you answer, - it's a tricky one ;)

Currently the WG is working through about twenty issues. The mailing list activity has ramped right up; at the moment it feels more like irc on a bad connection than email. A few other issues are being debated intensely, such as whether summaries are optional, or whether feeds must have links. And everyone is getting their +-1's in early. But the duplicates issue is an important one - the last few hours suggest we're getting somewhere on it tho'. Dave Johnson of Roller fame has been contributing to the duplicates discussion too, which is cool.
