Should Doppler update redirected feeds?

Apr 21, 2008 at 3:46 AM
If fetching a feed URL returns an HTTP 301 status code, should Doppler update itself with the new URL or continue to use the old URL? What would be your expected behavior? Does anybody know what other podcast software or feed readers do?

from rfc2616:

"The requested resource has been assigned a new permanent URI and any future references to this resource SHOULD use one of the returned URIs. Clients with link editing capabilities ought to automatically re-link references to the Request-URI to one or more of the new references returned by the server, where possible. This response is cacheable unless indicated otherwise."

I would say that it should update the Url to the new one.
