Hi,

I tried to import RSS 1.0 feed from Wordpress. Feedfeeder can't handle it because the feed lacks both published and updated attributes (updated = None -> bail out item).

I suggest 2 solutions

1) Publish item even if updated == None and published == None

2) Add warning "Please use RSS 2.0 or ATOM feeds. RSS 1.0 not supported"
Steps to reproduce:

Right, good point. Fixed on trunk in r85855: when both the updated and published date of an item is not known, take today as the date when first adding it. When updating, do not change the original item.

No responses can be added.
