Please support wfw:commentRss to enable the user to keep track of comments on
specific feed items.
I think a good way to display comments is like grouped messages in newsgroups.

Comment 1

When checking for new feed items, <slash:comments> can be used (if present) to
determine if new comments have been made. If so, the user should be informed (e.
g. by underline the feed item, like in newsgroups when there are unread
replies), and when the user expands it new comments should be retrieved.
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

This bug has been automatically resolved after a period of inactivity (see above
comment). If anyone thinks this is incorrect, they should feel free to reopen it.

No, this is RFE and quite certainly wasn't resolved yet.

the <wfw:commentRss> tag simply points to a comments feed url.  to support threading/grouping in Thunderbid, each comment item would have to have a field referring to its parent post; there is nothing in the rss2.0 spec to support this.

the Atom spec, however, does have an extension specifying how this works and it has been implemented in bug 761656.  this is but one of many reasons to use Atom and not an rss variation.
