Description

https://wordpress.org/feed/ exists, but is empty.
https://wordpress.org/news/feed/ returns the expected content/behaviour, so let's 301 redirect https://wordpress.org/feed/ to https://wordpress.org/news/feed/.

https://wordpress.org/news/comments/feed/ returns content from 2010, and should 301 to https://wordpress.org/news/feed/.

Replying to jonoaldersonwp:

https://wordpress.org/news/comments/feed/ returns content from 2010, and should 301 to https://wordpress.org/news/feed/.

Is that ideal? Redirecting it to an entirely different content-type? There's also the possibility that we'll have comments on news articles turned on in the future.

Ack, yes, good point. In the meantime, this is still spitting out 2010 content (which we're actively exposing/promoting).
Any ideas on alternative solutions?

I mean, we could stop linking to it?

However, interestingly, those all look like Pingbacks.. which AFAIK are not supposed to show up in comment feeds?

We can probably just disable the feed entirely until it's needed.

Ah, interesting. Can we filter out pingbacks? That should lead to an empty feed, right?
And/or let's just disable it.
