When a Phame blog post is updated, its item in its blog's feed is given a new date stamp and so appears at the top.
For example https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/phame/blog/feed/5/ (as of the time of writing) contains
<entry> <title>Labs and Tool Labs being renamed</title> <link href="/phame/live/5/post/59/labs_and_tool_labs_being_renamed/" /> <id>https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/phame/post/view/59/</id> <author><name>bd808 (Bryan Davis)</name></author> <updated>2018-03-05T04:30:22+00:00</updated> <content type="xhtml"> … </content> </entry>
even though that blog post was published on Jul 13 2017, 6:59 AM.
There should be an additional <published> element.
The "atom:updated" element is a Date construct indicating the most recent instant in time when an entry or feed was modified in a way the publisher considers significant.
Therefore, not all modifications necessarily result in a changed atom:updated value.
Publishers MAY change the value of this element over time.
The "atom:published" element is a Date construct indicating an instant in time associated with an event early in the life cycle of the entry.
Typically, atom:published will be associated with the initial creation or first availability of the resource.
(I originally noted this on a comment to the above blog post. I realise this is probably something that I should report upstream, but for some reason am unable to log in there right now.)
