Rome doesn't seem to parse the pubDate correctly out of the RSS feed when it is CDATA


Trying to read this feed:

Here is an example of it:

The pubdate is in CDATA and when I look at it in rome it is null. So it isn't handled correctly, the title and description are being handled correctly in this case.

I'm running into a similar issue where it seems like pubdates of the form <pubDate>Fri, 26 Oct 2012 01:47:20 UTC</pubDate> are not parsed. Here is an entire example item,

<title>Codebase Downloads w/ Pfile/Passwords</title>
<description>[quote=[url=/topic-4011-63131#p63131]KaVir/url]And while we're on the subject of submissions, I'd still like some way to remove [url=]or at least mark/url [i]obsolete/i code. It's irritating having to explain to people that despite its name, "KaVir's MUD Protocol Handler (Fixed Up Source Code)" is actually obsolete, and that they should instead download "KaVir's MUD Protocol Handler"./quoteThere doesn't appear to be an option to delete files, but if</description>

Which is from this feed,

All dates in the parsed feed are nil. Anyone have a clue about this?
