support for well formed web (wfw) extensions in django RSS feeds

The commonly used well formed web extensions
see e.g.
of RSS feeds allows inclusion of additional RSS comment feeds.

It would be great to add just the wfw comment extension to a WellFormedWebRss feed class.

I have trivially done this (see attached file) and am using this in a production system currently.

  • Component changed from Uncategorized to RSS framework
  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Design decision needed

Sounds promising. If this is accepted, it'll need docs, though.

Django's feed classes are intended to be a quick way to get started, not the end-all of syndication (see, for example, the lack of any support for Apple's custom RSS extensions). You should be able to implement this as a custom syndication class in a third-party library, but it's not appropriate for Django core.
