Syndication framework calls context processors twice per item

Reported by: IanLewis Owned by: nobody
Component: contrib.syndication Version: 1.0
Severity: Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Design decision needed
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no

Easy pickings: UI/UX:


The syndication framework renders title and description of items from a template which causes context_processors to be called twice per item in the feed. Even when a template is not specified the syndication framework renders a simple template "{{ obj }}" which calls context_processors needlessly and could possibly cause performance problems.

A patch is attached that calls force_unicode on the item to obtain the title and description when a template for the title or description is not provided.

This bug is marked "Design decision needed". What kind of design decision is needed? Would the proposed solution of simply rendering the item as unicode when there is no template specified be incorrect?
