[Pkg-mediawiki-devel] Bug#383130: mediawiki1.7: rss feed item should contain a guid element

Package: mediawiki1.7
Version: 1.7.1-1
Severity: normal

I noticed that when using the "recent changes" mediawiki RSS feed with
liferea, it keeps showing duplicate entries.

According to the liferea documentation[1], this appears to be a problem
with mediawiki[2].

It would be nice if this could be fixed.

"Q: Why do feed items keep being displayed as new?  A: This is usually
due to a bad feed which associated a particular ID to multiple items.
You should check your feed against a feed validator such as
feedvalidator.org. If the validator does not report any error, please
submit a bug report including the URL of the problem feed to the Liferea

Note: If you experience this problem with a planet feed the reason might
be that the planet feed does not provide unique item ids for one or all
off its source feeds. If this is the case Liferea has no chance to match
identical items."
