Description Ritesh Raj Sarraf 2008-12-09 19:44:37 UTC
Version: (using Devel) OS: Linux Installed from: Compiled sources Sorry if it is the wrong component. Some time back, it was told that all rss applications were going to use a common rss backend, probably libakregator or librss kind of thing. I just checked on KDE 4.2 Beta 1 and still all apps use their own rrs storage. This ends up requiring adding the same rss feed at multiple locations. The applications I checked include: * Akregator * RSSNow Plasmoid * News Plasmoid Is this feature been postponed to a future milestone ?

Hi! You should discuss about this type of issue with developers on mailing list or on the KDE forum ( forum.kde.org ). I'm closing this report because is not a bug. Thanks!

It is already a messy situation currently with 4.2. There are 2 plasmoids and akregator, so a total of 3 apps, all storing rss feed source in different places. Before 4.x, Aaron had mentioned that all rss apps should have a common store. I'm not sure what happened to that thought. I'm re-opening it because, I as a User, can't see a better place to file bugs/wishlists, and track them. Please don't expect a user to track devel/core-devel.

"As a user", you shouldn't have to care about how applications or widgets store their datas... This is clearly not a user question nor a bug.

Duplication of data is something that affects the user also. Configuring the same rss sites at 3 different locations is not the right/smart thing.
