[solved] RSS - Recent Updates (more) - Latest News RSS Feed

Hello,

the  RSS Recent Updates (more) don't work with the "Thunderbird RSS Newsreader.
I can use this RSS Channel with QuiteRSS.
https://www.archlinux32.org/feeds/packages/

Latest News RSS Feed RSS Feed  works fine with Thunderbird and QuiteRSS.

Why didn't work RSS Recent Updates (more) with RSS Thunderbird?

That packages feed looks to me like an RSSv2 file with an xml encoding initial line.  The news feed is an atom feed for me at least (although I can't get your link to work).

I don't know what sort of feeds Thunderbirds RSS supports, that's really a question for them if nobody here knows.

Re: [solved] RSS - Recent Updates (more) - Latest News RSS Feed

Running the feed throught xmllint fails with this tag:

<atom:link href="https://www.archlinux32.org/feeds/packages/" rel="self"></atom:link>

It says it doesn't have a source for the atom namespace.  I'm not sure why something that identifies itself as an rss feed contains atom namespaced items, so this might be an oversight.

I've tested that removing this element means it passes through xmllint without problems, but whether the same is true of thunderbird or not I couldn't say.  I installed thunderbird but I guess I need to put this file on the other side of an http server to test it.

I can easily remove that tag - the whole rss feed is basically upstream's rss feed reverse-enginered wink
Does it work with thunderbird now?
Otherwise I have to look deeper in the differences to upstream

Upstream defines the atom namespace in the rss tag:

<rss version="2.0" xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">

Like I say doing this in an rss file seems wrong to me, and if it's only to support that link I'm in favour of your solution of nixing the link as well.
