[aprssig] AVRS Issues (was Re: aprssig Digest, Vol 99, Issue 11)

Couldn't have asked the question any better myself.  I've worked with the
Echolink and IRLP managers to create an XML file that is generated
periodically on their respective servers, which I pull every 5 minutes or
so, parse, and then update my internal DB.  If such a file was available
for WIRES or AllStar, I'd happily include it in AVRS and make the nodes
available on the node map (currently http://www.aprs-alert.net/nodes.html )
