Running the Numbers

I input all the OPML files at the OPML Directory input my little utility and ran the numbers on the use of each feed type. There were too many hanging chaps (bad feeds) to compensate for, so after a day of rejigging the logic to compensate for bad XML, the final results ended up as follows...

  1. 0.91 = 3572 (47%)
  2. 2.0 = 3172 (42%)
  3. 0.92 = 367 (5%)
  4. 1.0 = 356 (5%)
  5. 0.9 = 38 (<1%)
  6. 0.93 = 29 (<1%)
  7. atom = 6 (<1%)

These are the number of feeds of each RSS version.

I have no idea. I think I'm going to write an engine to collect and report weekly. What do you think?
