:-)  Hey, it is only a development version...  called Spagetti-Code!

Currently I am creating a new structure which is more flexibel  and  has
more functions.

I think, I need more input...

I need someone which build some Example <item> how it it should look and
what it should display and then I do the rest...

The new structure I create, fetch only the infos and then use  a  <item>
template> which can be customized...

However, I will put it on my website:


So for the new structure (need some hours to get it online) I will use:


which SHOULD output an RSS feed with infos how to get RSS feeds per

1)  all
2)  $ARCH

OK, I have installed this pig of "liferea" which installs 46 MByte...
(I hate GNOME and KKDE since the programs are too blown)

Weird, since if I look into the source of


with Iceape and:


I can see:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" standalone="yes"?>
<rss xmlns:content="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/content/"; version="2.0">

and the PHP code itself is

    $strg  = "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"iso-8859-1\" standalone=\"yes\"?>\n";
    $strg .= "<rss xmlns:content=\"http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/content/\"; version=\"2.0\">\n";
    $strg .= "  <channel>\n";
    $strg .= "    <title>" . PROJECT_NAME . "</title>\n";

Since I had some problems, I asked upstream of "rss2mail" for  help  and
he told me the RSS feed is OK but there are many RSS standards...

Can it be, that "liferea" expect

    Content-Type: application/rss+xml; charset=utf8

while I am sending

    Content-Type: text/xml; charset=iso-8859-1

which should work for ANY RSS reader?  The first one  can  not  be  read
withing Iceape and I have to save it do disk.  Even with a Iceape plugin

OK, "liferea" ist installed...  and it just works by using the Link


Hey, it is realy nice...  However, 46 MByte for such program is heavy...

I have catched 547 buildlogs...

this is, what you get if you rebuild the FULL index with


where 730 are the last 730 days and then open the link


in "liferea" which I have done for some seconds...
(I have attached a screenshoot)

Maybe there is a bug in your version?  (My workstation is Etch)

OK, it seems, that I have to declare a "namspace"...

Yes, I will check it...
