Ironman and XML::Feed

Sam Graham complains that since the Ironman feed switched to using Perlanet, the entries have been “mangled”. By that he means that in some cases any HTML in feed entries is lost.

I think they’re running up against this bug in XML::Feed (which is one of the modules that Perlanet uses to process the feeds it subscribes to). There’s a patch in the bug report that I’ve applied to my local installation of XML::Feed and it seems to have fixed the problem.

Until the author releases a new version of XML::Feed that includes this patch, I recommend that anyone using XML::Feed (and that includes everyone using Perlanet) applies the patch for themselves.
