Subscribing to RT's RSS feeds

Hey everyone,

Has anybody successfully subscribed to an RT search RSS feed with
NetNewsWire (http://ranchero.com/)? I’m using RT 3.4.1 and the most
recent NNW beta.

Your client needs to support cookies for auth or you need to be using
external authentication. Or you need to put your username and password
into the URLs as &user=root&pass=password

That did the trick. Thanks. It looks like NetNewsWire doesn’t support
cookies for auth.

In the same vein, I haven’t been able to bookmark an RSS in Firefox. Is there
a trick to that?

If anyone else has any other RT RSS hints they can be added to this new
wiki page:
http://wiki.bestpractical.com/index.cgi?RssFeed

I have also been trying to do this, and I’m still not having any luck.

I’m using the URL
http://www.eecs.cwru.edu/rt3/Search/Results.rdf?
Order=ASC&Query=%20Owner%20%3D%20’12106’%20%20AND%20Status%20!%3D%20’res
olved’%20&user=sak8&pass=mypassword

NetNewsWire 2.0b45 and a few other RSS programs that I’ve tried don’t
return anything. feedvalidator.org reports:

line 79, column 30: XML parsing error: :79:30: not well-formed
(invalid token)
dc:creatorSimon Kuhnsak8-rt@eecs.cwru.edu</dc:creator>

(I think that it doesn’t like the @)

Although I’m not sure if this is the reason why nothing is showing up.

Any ideas?

What version of XML::RSS do you have installed? Older versions didn’t
encode entities by default. (RT should probably require at least
version 1.02, but doesn’t seem to.)

Dave Glasser pointed out that my XML::RSS module was out-of-date. I use
pkgsrc on Solaris, and submitted a pr there to update their package. I
also updated the RT wiki with this information.

How about making testdeps require a modern version of XML::RSS?

Done.
