I edited my local copy of whatsnew.html to have a new variable  
“feeds” with value 1. This gets checked by header.html, which in  
turn prints the two LINK tags for the Atom and RSS 1.0 feeds of the  
whatsnew page.

When it comes to CVS I don’t really know what I am doing, but after  
googling a bit I have created a patch with these changes, which I am  
attaching to this message. I hope it helps.
