[ELPA] New package: Webfeeder

Pierre Neidhardt-2
Hi!

I'm happy to announce the initial release of Emacs Webfeeder, an RSS /
Atom webfeed generator that works directly over HTML files.

  https://gitlab.com/ambrevar/emacs-webfeeder

From the readme.org:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Webfeeder is an Emacs library to generate [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS][RSS]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atom_(Web_standard)][Atom]] feeds from HTML files.

Other webfeed generators have been written for Emacs, but either they are tied
to other projects like blog generators, or they only work on Org files like
=ox-rss=.  Since Webfeeder generates webfeeds from HTML files, it is more
general.

The various elements of the HTML input are parsed with customizable functions.
For instance, Webfeeder offers two functions to parse the title:
~webfeeder-title-libxml~ (using libxml if your Emacs is linked against it)
and the less reliable ~webfeeder-title-default~.
Feel free to write you own function and bind ~webfeeder-title-function~
before generating the feeds.

The generated feeds should be valid on https://validator.w3.org/feed/.  If not,
it's a bug, please report.

Example:

(webfeeder-build
 "atom.xml"
 "./public"
 "https://example.org/"
 '("post1.html" "post2.html" "post3.html")
 :title "My homepage"
 :description "A collection of articles in Atom")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I'd like to add the package to ELPA.
Feedback is more than welcome!

Cheers!
