I'm writing Java code to read Advogato diary entries using the site's XML-RPC interface and the Apache XML-RPC library. I can't get the getDates() method to work, and the cause appears to be some off-spec XML-RPC encoding in the response, as I describe on the XML-RPC discussion board. Help from XML-RPC gurus would be appreciated. I'm so deep into this debugging effort that I feel like Kurtz in Apocalypse Now ("The horror. The horror.").
