Atom Publishing Protocol: Atompub

Doing stuff with the Atom Publishing Protocol, I’ve noticed that it goes by two (shortened) names: APP and Atompub. I’d become used to calling it APP, but I’ve decided to make a conscious effort to call it Atompub from now on, and I encourage you all to do the same. You cannot usefully search for “APP”, and it’s pronunciation is ambiguous. Atompub is a much better name.

And as long as we’re talking about names, I’ll note that the Cheese Shop is now called PyPI again. I think we are supposed to pronounce it pih-pee, distinct from PyPy which is pie-pie. (Blast, PyPI is down; the Zope guys have been making a static stripped-down mirror for use with Setuptools, over here)
