Thanks for all your good work (and sorry for not coming back earlier
to your mail, pretty busy on my site as well). Your contributions
will be the reason for the next release (probably 0.6.9) going out
soon. I am trying to fix the remaining issues regarding the Hibernate
backend. Btw, have you used it in your project or how do you persist
all your millions of feed? BlogScope seems to be an absolute awesome
project, great stuff!!
Thanks again, for all your help!
