Re: I agree

I've noticed something odd about the RSS feed, some articles appear in it twice, coz they edited the title.

That seems to happen when the _url_ is changed, as the RSS feeds' "id" field is for some reason set to the path part of the story's URL, which changes if the story URL changes (which happens).

It seems like we should migrate to using an unique "id" instead, but we need to do that from a certain point going forward or we risk all RSS readers seeing all stories as being "new".

Thanks for the bug report, I'll add it to our pile and see what can be done about it.
