This is one of the proposed features to this site.

The Premise

The idea is to add an RSS feed of developer blogs to each program, where applicable. There can also be an aggregation of these feeds on the main page.


  • Add RSS-dev-blog variable to hold RSS feeds of deveoper updates for each package
  • Add "News" tab to info page, or box under info box that contains all of the aggregated news for that package
  • Add box to main page listing the aggregated news items for all packages
  • put icon in browsing mode if a program has an RSS feed.)

Developing the feature

Right now, no one is working on this. If you are interested in helping, get in touch with sudoman or jgay by leaving a message on our talk pages, or on IRC (
