Pinky: Content aggregation over text-based protocols

[WIP protocol specification]

Pinky is a simple, slow content aggregation format, designed for text-based formats. For any given page that you want to be able to be aggregated with Pinky, look for the following within the first three lines:

Updated: YYYY-MM

Pinky clients should use this line in order to aggregate recently updated pages.

Pinky pages are ephemeral and update slowly. Check your friends' finger pages monthly, as updates are only captured monthly, and may be overwritten with new content.

Pinky works over any protocol service plain text, e.g. finger, gemini, or any plaintext file sent over HTTP.
