I can take a look at the code and maybe pass the question on to my colleagues on the debian-perl team to see if we can't fix that script.

The web pages at http://www.debian.org/News/project/2010/01/ and http://www.debian.org/News/project/ should have a '<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" href="dwn" title="Debian Project News as RSS feed">' (or something similar) in their <head>. Again I have no idea, how to do that.
