Our photo album wouldn't publish on this last update, and it took quite a while to figure out what the problem was.Originally, the error had to do with the library Encode not being compiled correctly, and I had to run enc2xs on the Encode module.  I am not sure whose "fault" that was, cpan or Debian, though a recent Debian upgrade is what caused the problem to show up.  After I fixed that error, another error showed up, "$text is undefined in XML::RSS::_encode(). We don't know how to handle it!".  That took some time to figure out as well, but it turnd out the problem was the RSS plugin in album, and the newer version of lib-xml-rss requires a description, where previously, I hadn't entered one.

I modified the rss.alp file to put a default description if the user forgot to add one.  Presumably similar code needs to be added for the name and title as well.
