#5411 closed (duplicate)

Atom feeds have fixed title and summary content types

The Atom feed support in SVN implicitly forces title and subtitle elements to be interpreted as plain text; see section 3.1.1 of RFC 4287. This makes it impossible to use HTML entities such as ” in titles. The same problem occurs with the summary element, which is hard-coded to HTML.

I'm attaching a patch which makes these properties configurable, as attributes of Atom1Feed. The default title type remains text, for backwards compatibility.

I have a feeling that James Tauber's work in #3569 is the place to look to solve this, as he's working on adding a lot more flexibility to our Atom support.
