Description

6 years ago
Up until this point, we have been working under the assumption that we had one main RSS feed. We opened many bugs related to this (nonexistent) feed: "add this to the main feed", "add that to the main feed", etc.

In a planning meeting, Sheppy and the development team clarified that we do not have one main RSS feed. Additionally, they mentioned that it would be best to create lots of small feeds at first, and that only the only RSS feed that needs to be ready before launch is a feed reporting new/deleted/changed pages.

Long story short: I will update all of our RSS bugs to reflect this new understanding. This bug is about creating one main RSS feed that aggregates all of the individual ones.

Might need some more detail here. There are a number of feeds that might not necessarily work being combined, such as:

* Documents in need of translation update in a locale
* New file attachments
* Recent revisions, per-locale and across locales
* Recently updated documents, per-locale and across locales
* Recently updated documents for a tag, per-locale and across locales
* Demo studio submissions, all and per-tag

I think what this bug should be more about is... What specifically and exactly should the "main" feed contain, regardless of what other feeds already exist?

Sheppy: See comment 1.
Basically, here's the stuff I want to see all in the "revisions" RSS feed:

1. Changes to text in articles.
2. Changes to tags on articles.
3. Attachments and removals of files on articles.
4. Article moves.
5. Article deletions.
6. Article creations.

There may be other things, but those are the ones I can think of right now.

Sheppy, do you still use the RSS feeds regularly now that we have the Revision Dashboard?

No, because our current RSS feeds are crap. We need to make them better.

Here's the deal: for me at least, and likely others, RSS feeds integrate into my workflow better than a dashboard does. I would like for these things to show up alongside all my blog feeds, etc, so that I can deal with everything in one place. My feed reader alerts me when new stuff comes along, which a dashboard doesn't do, as well.

I've heard from others (especially developers) that they'd prefer RSS as well, but I don't know how serious the issue is for them.

All I know is that for me, I would drop the dashboard like a hot potato if the RSS feeds were good. :)
