#3664 closed defect (fixed)

Trac timeline feed/rss unreachable

Reported by: Offereins Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Trac Keywords:


This issue was discussed with @ocean90 at #WCEU 2018.

Previously, the RSS feeds of the trac timelines (core's as well as BuddyPress's) were my way of staying up to date of all changes in these projects. Although the feeds still work when visited in the browser, my feed reader Feedly marks them as unreachable since a few weeks. To my knowledge this could be due to a change in the latest Trac update(s).

Can this be fixed? Or should this be reported somewhere else?

The RSS feeds are working fine. If you're trying to load a really big feed, with lots of entries, then it will timeout. So, don't load a big timeline feed. But other than that, nothing has changed.

This is broken @Otto42 - we are returning a 403 to the feedly UA:

curl -I -A 'Feedly/1.0' "https://core.trac.wordpress.org/timeline?changeset=on&max=50&authors=&daysback=90&format=rss"

Well, if it's only for their UA, then it is probably a question for Systems then. Did we block feedly for a specific reason? Are they hitting it too often? Etc.

Feedly is indeed intentionally blocked, submitted a Systems ticket https://make.wordpress.org/systems/2018/06/20/feedly-rss-blocking/
