Hi all,

thanks for the input about feed. Unless I hear from Sigbjorn or Don I will make a release soon, along these lines:

- it will depend on xml-conduit
- it will include a fix or two from Gwern Branwen and Frédéric Bour
- the version will be 1.0
- the maintainer will be Haskell community <libraries at haskell.org>
- the repo will be moved to github, under my account since I don't think there's a haskell community one
