What is the feed url?

This page is microformated in hAtom, but there is no RSS or Atom feed.

Ah, there is content in the page to "Subscribe".

This is a bit weird, as it's the hacks blog feed, a different web property.
Short term, +1, long term we should figure out where Hacks lives... Subscribe should encompass updates to this page, or all of MDN, but not just hacks.

Jay, what do you think about temporarily adding hacks.mozilla.org as feed link for developer.mozilla.org? My only concern is the temporary subscribers may not look for an improved feed later - ideally the feed aggregates developer.mozilla.org content and doesn't just syndicate content from hacks.

+1

These pages don't currently have a CMS managing new content which needs syndicating. Once these pages have original content, we can add feeds. Same comment for Bug#611024.

That is our best option right now... so +1 for what Luke and Austin have already suggested.  Let's get the feed for Hacks on there until we are in the position to create a more robust/complete feed of MDN content.
