Bug #8889

Nodoc large parts of RSS

Added by Steve Klabnik over 2 years ago. Updated over 2 years ago.

ruby -v:


Continuing my focus on getting RSS documented, I believe that large amounts of it should be nodoc'd. The vast majority of the code is actually internal implementation detail; the big stuff is the builder DSL, which isn't really served by API-level documentation.

The attached patch nodocs everything that's in the top-level files, those being the ones for the specific formats. If it's agreed that most of the rest should be nodoc'd as well, I can do that in another patch, or if we do want api-level docs for all of this, I can work on actually writing those.

I like RSS, I think we should provide api-level documentation for things like Feed and Channel and Entry. The entity types might not be as important though.

Would you agree? With no objection, I would like to reject this ticket and ask for a new patch.

Thank you!

Sounds good to me. I'm not sure when I will get to it, but that makes sense.
