Our #ngi-pointer team is working on a new feed format for partial replication.
The background here is that, using the current json based format would make it immortal with all its quirks and problems. We thus decided to make a format that's super simple to implement and just caters to the needs of meta-feeds. After some convincing, we are now trying the established bencode (think torrent metadata) instead of bipf (which would need custom encoder libraries before being able to implement the format).
One question needs all your input: What should we call it?
Feel free to reply here or on this issue.
