Any other business

Many Podcatchers don't show the episode author

  • It seems that the author fields in RSS and Atom feeds are not shown by a number of Podcatchers. This field is intended to show the author details, and with HPR shows it contains an obfuscated email address and a name:
        ken.nospam@nospam.fallon.ie (Ken Fallon)
  • The lack of this information makes knowing who created a given HPR show difficult to determine before listening to it.

  • A question has been raised as to whether we could include the author details at the start of the show notes.

  • Comments are requested from the Community as to whether this would be a useful addition.

The Corresponding Source - renamed podcast

  • The Corresponding Source (formerly Free as in Freedom) is a bi-weekly oggcast, hosted and presented by Bradley M. Kuhn and Karen Sandler. The discussion includes legal, policy, and many other issues in the Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS) world. Occasionally, guests join Bradley and Karen to discuss various topics regarding FLOSS.

HPR changes

  • The correspondent pages which show details of a particular correspondent (host), and lists their shows, have been enhanced to include the profile which has been uploaded by the host. This was present on the old site but was omitted on the static site. This was issue number 181 on the Gitea site, which has been closed.

Return of OggCamp

  • There are plans to hold OggCamp 2024 in Manchester, UK this year, after an absence of 5 years. It will be on October 12th and 13th at the The Manchester Conference Centre in the Pendulum Hotel near Picadilly Station, where the last OggCamp was held.

  • Details may be found on the OggCamp website, and announcements will be made on social media sites.
