Ecosystem Cleanup II

Yet more Ecosystem cleanup today. I have completely changed the way the names of weblogs are identified now. Previously, the name was simply whatever was manually typed in when the weblog was registered.
Now, the Ecosystem is actually reading the TITLE attribute off the HTML of a weblog’s page, and using that for the name.
What this means is that there is now no need to submit requests for updates if you change the name of your weblog; just change the TITLE (as you probably were doing anyway) and it will be automatically reflected in the Ecosystem.
This is a first step in a new way of handling data updates by putting them directly in the hands of the weblog’s owner. In the near future, I plan to implement similar methods to handle deleting blogs from the Ecosystem entirely, and moving a blog from one URL to another. But for now, have fun with titles…
