Hello everyone,

I know itís not a priority, but since it went off the radar in  
September I thought it was worth it to point out this:

  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-qa-dev/2005Sep/0016.html

Basically, adding the following line in the <head> of the WMVS would  
make its feed auto-discoverable in news readers and in rss/atom- 
enabled user agents (as my Safari on OS X, but so is Firefox on any  
platform) and that would make it much more useful enabling one-click  
subscription, for example. The line that needs to be put in:-

[[[
<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml"
       href="http://validator.w3.org/whatsnew.atom" />
]]]

Cheers.
