Aheam yes well I did it locally just to avoid any possible trouble or

  As long as you have the news in a database, the feed generation 
package is one single script. Then you need to add a cronjob and you 
are done.
Of course it might not be a priority so it can wait. No hurry from my 
side ;)

In the meantime I could do the feed for the mailing lists.  Oh ...I 
also need to find the time to finish my postgresql articles
I think the feeds fits well in the advocacy project. I know many 
developers with a blog or newsfeed aggregator. I suspect they would be 
pleased to add the pgsql feed.

  In fact many of the leading website are now generating a lot of 
traffic via the feeds. Just think about 100 then 1000 websites 
displaying the official feed.

We might also shake up the guys at O'Reilly to add it somewhere.
