No postings neither on the mailinglists nor in the forums are being
answered.
Somewhere he stated that he had turned to another hobby.

Some of the question I have but found answered nowhere:

I have a feedparser object that was created from a string. How can I trigger
a update (from a new string) but the feedparser should treat the new string
like the same feed (thus setting feed.updated etc.). 
 
- How can I trigger a update from a new file? 
- Does feedparser has the desired behavior? 

Regards,

Florian
