kernel.org feed

I tried Simplepie and Magpie on the kernel.org feed, but both methods just display the one item in the feed (in both cases kernel 2.6.34.7).
Would be nice to see all items :lol:

Feed URL: http://kernel.org/kdist/rss.xml

It would be nice, but they'll have to fix their feed first. All the articles have the same GUID (actually, no guid at all, so the link field is used instead) and tt-rss has no means to distinguish different posts.

According to http://www.mnot.net/rss/tutorial/, RSS 1.0 uses rdf:about for this purpose:
Distinct Entries — Make sure that aggregators can tell your entries apart, by using different identifiers in rdf:about (RSS 1.0), guid (RSS 2.0) and id (Atom). This will save a lot of headaches down the road.


(I just googled this thing, as im not into the rss specs)
Each item has its own rdf:about, so this seems to be fine.

Yeah, looks like this should work well enough. Thanks for the report. :)

Thanks for fixing this so fast :)

(btw: This fix only works with magpie, not with simplepie, what is fine for me, just wanted to say ;) )
