Listen up all your RSS-heads, ‘cause today’s your day. You asked and we listened, you requested and we enacted!
Both the Magento Team and the Community Advisory Board have been working hard on the continuing efforts to ease access to resources and to enable more community engagement and participation. One of the major things we have discussed and that many community members have asked us for is some way to more easily track activity on the bug tracker, perhaps even an automated way.
I am very pleased to announce that as of today, the RSS functionality which we have been implementing on the Bug Tracker is now LIVE!! If you make your way to the bug tracker page, right under the nav bar, on the right hand side you will see a link that looks like this:
That is a link to the feed for “All Issues” in the bug tracker and will update any time there is a change. Additionally, we have also added the functionality to track on a ‘per issue’ basis, so you can subscribe to individual bugs as well. When you log into an individual bug, that link on the right will be displayed with another link allowing you the option to track that specific bug. Check it out.
If you’re also using Firefox, or any other modern browser, you’ll be able to click on the RSS icon in the toolbar and see the feeds and either read or subscribe to them from there:
We are still working on getting email notifications up and running. In the mean time, you can use services like Feed My Inbox to translate the feed to an email for you!
Remember, this is the first step of many to come and I hope everyone in the community finds the added functionality useful. Happy Hacking and as always, if you have any issues please email me and let me know.
