Multiple enclosures per feed's item

For now, Feed.item_enclosure_url represents a single enclosure for an item. It should be nice to support many enclosures per item. Something like that:

class ExampleFeed(Feed):
    def item_enclosure_url(self, item):
        return [video.url for video in item.videos]

  • Triage Stage changed from Accepted to Design decision needed

It appears that RSS only officially supports one enclosure per item {1}, and Atom supports multiple. Since RSS is the default feed, actually the use case presented in the bug report is invalid. The question then becomes, should we support multiple enclosures for Atom? As of now the enclosure is handled in the same general way in both types of feeds.

Changing to "Design Decision Needed" before I do anything else... Please let me know if that was the wrong thing to do in this situation, as I'm pretty new to the Django community.

It should be possible to accept either a string or a list of string, and to validate that there's only one enclosure for RSS feeds.
