>                 Key: INFRA-961
>                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-961
>             Project: Infrastructure
>          Issue Type: Bug
>      Security Level: public(Regular issues) 
>          Components: Mail Archives
>         Environment: Windows XP, different feed readers
>            Reporter: Georg
>            Priority: Critical
> A lot of feed readers check a feed for validity when subscribing / updating. Some refuse
to do anything with an invalid feed, others try to be fault tolerant but fail, some succeed,
depending on the error. One cannot use the feed until the invalid parts are too old, which
means several days to weeks the feeds are not usable.
> For instance, http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/geronimo-servicemix-users/?format=atom
contains as of 2006-09-26 some 55 errors  and 40 warnings, mainly related to illegal/bad characters
and incorrect URN formatting. Several errors have their origin in source code posted in the
list and user names.
> Please escape problematic characters and make the software produce correct URNs -- that
shall make the feeds usable for most feed readers :-)
