The necessary changes to accommodate a per show explicit
field has been made. I have just modified the backend and the mp3,
ogg and spx feeds to include the option to add the option to filter
based on the explicit tag. The only option is 'explicit=0'.


This will leave the <itunes:explicit> on the <channel> as "Yes" but will
toggle the <item> to <itunes:explicit>clean</itunes:explicit>.
Currently the only shows flagged as 'explicit=0' are the ones from
klaatu. For those wishing to reclassify your shows please review the
attached guidelines from the FCC and follow the link to Apples website
http://www.apple.com/itunes/podcasts/specs.html. Apple has a policy of
banning incorrectly flagged shows, so we could loose approximately 7 -
20 % of HPR listeners in one fell swoop if you classify your show

Please alert me or admin at hackerpublicradio.org if anything strange
starts to happen.
