My only concern about an RSS feed _instead_ of the mailing list is that 
sometimes overnight, KDE or GNOME move and there is several hundred 
messages.  So unless the feed it is serving is very large, I would be 
bound to miss some.  The same thing is annoying me with flyspray (10 
latest bugs) although there is probably a way around that...
