  Description     : deliver rss feeds to Maildirs

rssdrop is a simple RSS -> mail gateway. It delivers new RSS feed items
directly to a local Maildir folder of your choice. You can use your
favorite mail client to read them.

rssdrop knows the basic structure of RSS 1.0, 2.0 and ATOM feeds, enough
to deliver the raw item xml as the body of the message, or fetch the
fulltext from the item link. Use fulltext = 1 in your feed config for
that.


I stumbled upon rssdrop while trying feed2imap, which simply does not
work due to restirctions it imposes on my IMAP password with its
configuration interface. I think having a tool in Debian that can drop
articles directly into a Maildir would be a good addition.

Hi,

How is this different from rss2email? It's also a local client that
allows sending email in response to RSS feeds.

Right now it can't deliver directly to a Maildir, but it's possible
through a patch (https://github.com/wking/rss2email/pull/21), or via a
MDA (see #446160 for a discussion - that's personally how I use it).

Also, you should really file an ITP before working on the package.

Have a nice day

It's an alternative.

Oh, you're right. Good thing I retitled it long before your mail :)!

JFTR I meant that there should be enough time for discussion between
when the ITP is filed and the corresponding RFS is sent :)

I do not see why. A sponsor can decide to sponsor or not to sponsor the package without any discussion if they feel so inclined.

I see two benefits in filing an ITP in advance:

  - it reduces work duplication, should another person work on this
    package at the same time.
  - it can answer the usual questions: is this package needed, what
    need does it answer, is it legally suitable for inclusion in
    Debian.

(cf. devref §5.1)

The second point is in part answered by a sponsor, but as ITPs are
CC'd to d-devel the whole project (and not only people interested in
sponsoring) can discuss about it.

(Just to be clear, I have no objection to including rssdrop.)
