Hm, the docstring for nnrss-normalize-date says:
"Return a date string of DATE in the RFC822 style.
This function handles the ISO 8601 date format described in
<URL:http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-datetime>, and also the RFC822 style
which RSS 2.0 allows."
but what you show is a Unix time stamp, which is not one of those
styles. I checked RFC822 and a Unix time stamp is not allowed. It
shouldn't break nnrss, though, and we may as well give correct data
instead of complaining.
The attached patch will let nnrss-normalize-date do the right thing with
that header, please try it and let me know if it works. Perhaps it
should just call timezone-parse-* functions instead of rolling its own,
Emacs developers: should timezone-parse-* in timezone.el also handle
Unix time stamps? I think it makes sense to add that format. The docs
say it's not currently supported.
