ANN: Django site on washingtonpost.com


Check it out: The first Django app at washingtonpost.com!

The U.S. Congress Votes Databasehttp://projects.washingtonpost.com/congress/It lets you browse every vote in the U.S. Congress since 1991.

This is the first of many Django apps at The Post. :)

Already added to my aggregator. ;-)

BTW, is there any particular reason the Recent Votes feed is in Atom,
while all the others are in RSS? (Not that my aggregator cares; just
curious!)

Nice catch! I'd left that code in as a test and forgot to remove it.
I'll update it on the site tomorrow. Thanks very much.

Very useful, and the RSS feeds could be a very handy tool for activists.
One thing -- the RSS feeds would be a lot more useful if they included
the bill and the vote description -- the Question field is not very
informative without that, and right now it's the only thing besides Yes
or No in the entry afaict.

Right -- a bunch of other people have mentioned this, so I'll be
rolling in the change. Thanks. :)
