XML::FeedPP version 0.35 doesn't seem to handle a two-digit date format (eg 08 for 2008) in the pubDate field of RSS. The RSS spec says that although a 4-digit year is preferable, a two digit field is OK. eg, <pubDate>Tue, 26 Aug 08 11:00:00 GMT</pubDate> comes out as: 0008-08-26T11:00:00Z instead of: 2008-08-xxxx -- Illtud Daniel Uwch Ddadansoddwr Systemau Senior Systems Analyst Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru National Library of Wales Yn siarad drosof fy hun, nid LlGC - Speaking personally, not for NLW

Now XML::FeedPP allows two-digit date format. Thanks to Illtud Daniel and Anthony DeRobertis. I've also added a test for Anthony's patch. Version 0.36 updated will be soon available on CPAN: Or directly get from my website:
