Hi All,

Back in April there was some discussion about the series and tags within
the HPR database. There were questions about which series were open or
closed (private or public), and a request for a Cooking series.

There has been some work done to rationalise the series since then. A
few series have been replaced by tags, some have been renamed, and a new
series display produced at http://hackerpublicradio.org/series.php

The new series.php shows more information about each series: number of
shows, whether they are open or closed, dates of earliest and latest
episode and links to RSS feeds. The feed feature is something Ken
implemented a while ago which I for one had forgotten about. With it you
can subscribe to the episodes of a specific series.

Also, a "Cooking" series has been created!

There are further changes to be made; we need to implement a better tag
interface, and the difference between shows sharing tags and shows in a
series needs to be clarified.
