I think it's a great framework!

I made a couple of questions earlier but they went unanswered


so if my blogware doesn't have a local copy of this server repository,
downloads it from a sort of canonical source. Then, either

a) the canonical(s) server(s) ping my blogware when any record is
inserted / deleted / updated. My blogware can then choose to sync itself
incrementally or not.

b) my blogware downloads a fresh copy of the repository at certain
times (every hour / day / week / month) to be sure it's up to date.

Other than that, i also think that auto-discovery systems could log the
servers they find and transmit those logs to the repository. So the
repository can discard the already known ones and add those really "new"

This way the repository works for the blogging systems and the blogging
systems also work for the common wealth :)
