Where's the georss content? We wrote up a widget for georss and we'll
be using it with a compusult rss feed for the GEOINT conference, but I
had to send Barry a georss snippet from a google cache as an example.
Anyway, we completed a catalog harvester for KML (you can now search for
KML files)and cataloging georss is next on the list.
