RSS/Atom feeds to follow activity
Closed, DuplicatePublic


(Upstreaming from testing by Wikimedia community in )

I don't see RSS/Atom feeds anywhere to follow activity.

Also wondering if RSS feeds for saved task searches are technically a separate request ( )

aklapper raised the priority of this task from to Needs Triage.
aklapper updated the task description. (Show Details)
aklapper added a project: Maniphest.
aklapper added a subscriber: aklapper.

I'm going to merge this into T1928, summary is:

  • As a technology, RSS seems to be on the way out.
  • Based on talking with people who implemented RSS at Facebook, I'm worried this will take a lot of time to build/support (i.e., there will be a long tail of users complaining that their specific obscure RSS reader doesn't work).
  • Authentication is not trivial.
  • Overall, this is hard to prioritize because there's limited interest in it, the technology seems to be declining, and the implementation cost is unknown but possibly large.
