- I'm populating the title for each entry and the description directly from the ID3 tags provided using the Mutagen library.
- I ran into an issue with my podcatching software, because the files are only tagged with the year and not a full date, so part of the code is to take a fully-formatted date string and write it back to the file so that it is listed correctly when my software "downloads" the file from the feed.
- Also, I ran into an issue with some Unicode characters in the description (mostly an ellipsis), so I took the quick-and-dirty (and probably not exactly correct) route and just converted everything in the description field to ASCII before writing it out to the feed.
Dan has also kindly agreed to let me share his code:
Thanks again to Dan.
