First a few process items:
Please create a Bugzilla issue and then after creating it, add the  
appender as a patch.  Please replace the ASF copyright notice with  
the ASF license header from http://www.apache.org/legal/src- 
headers.html.  Please review the individual contributors license  
(http://www.apache.org/licenses/icla.txt) and consider if you satisfy  
the conditions (the work is your original creation, etc).

Now for the technical:

I would suggest splitting the appender into an HTTPAppender and an  
ATOMLayout.  That would allow you to reuse the appender with an RSS  
or other layout.
Adding a JDOM dependency isn't desirable.  I'd do ATOMLayout using a  
SAX-based XML serializer (see http://www.javazoom.net/services/ 
newsletter/xmlgeneration.html for an example).  I haven't tried the  
JAXP 1.1's trick of using an XSLT processor as a serializer, but it  
avoids adding an dependency on Xalan or Xerces.  If you don't want to  
do that and just submit it as is, that would be fine.
