Description

The commonly used well formed web extensions
see e.g. http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/RSS:Article:Why_Well-Formed_Web_RSS_Module_is_Popular_-_Syndicating_Your_Comments
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.
