#4016 closed feature request (invalid)

metaWeblog importer needed

If we had an importer that could send XML-RPC requests using the metaWeblog protocol, it would be possible to import posts/categories from any blogging system that supported it, which is quite a lot.

This is also the only way I can see to retrieve post data from MSN's Live Spaces system. Reference: http://dev.live.com/blogs/spaces/archive/2006/06/08/17.aspx

With some additions, one could add support for the MoveableType and/or Blogger XML-RPC protocols, although since we already have methods to import these, it might not be as useful.

I don't believe this is actually relevant anymore. Closing unless somebody can give a good reason to have it, and even then it should be done as a plugin.
