RSS from MHonArc

Recently a number of people have been asking me for the MRC file I use to generate the RSS feeds on the midrange.com mailing list archives … so, here it is.

[tags]rss, mhonarc[/tags]

This is a MHonArc rcfile, which is designed to
generate RDF output. RDF is format designed for
computer to computer communications of data, and
might be used for providing information produced
on one web site for display or links on another.
RDF contains content information -- and absolutely no
information regarding how to render that content.
I used http://www.slashdot.org/slashdot.rdf
and http://www.w3.org/RDF/Implementations/SiRPAC/
for reference when writing this rcfile.

This rcfile depends on a variable $X-MAILLIST$ which
must be defined in the MHonArc call (using -definevar)
Additionally, this rcfile has many hardcoded references
to mail-archive.com.
