it drops back to html, suddenly ignoring the format parameter. As
mentioned,e.g. with the 384th item of the tag
returns RSS,
suddenly HTML.
 ( wget
respectively wget

please note: with another tag like "human" the 384th item does not seem
to cause problems.

we'll have a look into it.

please give us some days to sort this api thingy out, we can write
parsers but it's gonna get nasty if we can't d/l the complete list each
time, w/o the API we also have no way to determine what is actually new
in the last 30 days.

Question: Why don't we do a full release each 30 days? In case you fear
the bandwidth tell me how big your downloads directory is and I tell you
if you got an european mirror.
