I was thinking at something similar for the error reporting part: we
could use custom namespaced elements for reporting errors to clients,
the same way as YouTube does.
However, I think the most important changes have to be made to the
Abdera server implementation, in order to properly gather error
conditions. For example, the whole Atom validation stuff, currently
performed by the ProviderHelper class, could be refactored (where
"refactoring" here is somewhat improperly used, but you get the idea)
in order to be performed by a specific "Validator" class, which would
better handle error conditions.
There would probably be several refactorings/modifications, so I'd
like to know if you, guys, are interested in such an issue.
