I need help and would appreciate if someone could enlighten me on a technical question. I found the following in a comment to Neville’s blog:

“Now, when most RSS aggregators encounter a permanent redirect, they change the stored feed URL to point to the new location (as they should). This is important, since it enables feed producers to move their feeds around without affecting those reading their feeds.”

Is this really true? Is it true for both client side and server side aggregators (for example Bloglines)? How do I as a publisher do the “permanent redirect”?

I’m asking because I want to change publishing platform. I had hoped for some development of Blogger (trackback, categories etc.) but nothing happens. At the same time, I don’t want to lose you — the readers of this blog. And the fact is that I generally find myself ignoring bloggers’ pleas to update feed subscriptions, thinking “I’ll do it later”.
