RSS feeds are up

For the newsletter and news. You need to go to the news/newsletter archive site respectively to get to them. They're at the bottom due to the way drupal views work.

Opera recognised both feeds, thanks.
One question: can these feeds be merged? They serve a rather similar purpose: keep informed about latest news.
Can you also consider naming them "ReactOS news" and "ReactOS newsletter" instead of generic "News Archive" and "Newsletter Archive"? It will make them easier to identify when there is many subscribed feeds.

Thanks.
Just to educate myself. Should such enhancement requests also be filled in Jira?

This constitutes content adjustments, in which case it's faster to try to get in touch with me.

You mean PM? Or is the forum ok, so other people know what was suggested?

I think it's better to post them here, publicy (unless it is a security bug). Noneless the subtitle of this Forum is "Suggestions.....website" :)

I'm not 100% sure this belongs here...

I am unable to find the "latest news" rss feed. When I go to the archive pages the feed is empty (at least Chrome shows it as empty) (also it is marked as "archive" feed, and I want the current news+newsletter stuff).

Just checked (Opera 12.15): can get both and they are not empty. But they seem to be only available from their respective archive pages. It would be convenient to have the feed(s) directly from the main page too. And merged. As it was already discussed and accepted above, I guess it is simply postponed until after the 0.3.15 release.

Note the rss feeds are language specific. If you're on a language that does not have any translations, then they could well be empty.

Yes that is the case. On the german page it is empty.

Ah, so that's the catch.
