Podget is a simple podcast aggregator optimized for running as a scheduled background job (i.e. cron). It features support for downloading podcasts from RSS and XML feeds, for sorting the podcasts into folders and categories, for importing podcast URLs from iTunes PCAST files and OPML lists, automatic M3U and ASX playlist creation, and automatic cleanup of old podcasts. It also features automatic UTF-16 conversion for podcasts hosted on Windows servers and includes the ability to handle authentication for premium podcasts.
PyDSH is a toolset to help simplify the administration of remote systems. The pydsh command enables running of a command on multiple hosts in parallel over RSH, SSH, or telnet, and manages your SSH public and private keys. The pydcp command enables SCP-like functions to and from multiple hosts in parallel.

Nothing needs to be changed. We started tracking sessions because some people had feed lists so long that some updates would cause their cron jobs to trigger off multiple sessions & multiple downloads of the same files.

This appears to be a bug. What version of Podget are you running?

1+ refers to the number 1 or any bigger digit. It could be 1, it could be 5, it could be 100.
