I'm a Google Summer of Code student working on a patch verification
system (http://pybots.org/pvs/) for Python. Work on this project
involves getting some data from the Roundup tracker and this is where
my question comes from. I haven't looked into the code much, but
figured I'd be better of asking people who already know Roundup code
base well. OK, here goes.

I would like to get from a Roundup instance information on recently
modified issues. I already noticed there are no RSS/Atom feeds
implemented, nor any RPC interface. Maybe there are other ways of
getting this data from a remote client? A custom detector with
notification capabilities may be a solution, but I would really like
to keep the communication initiated by the client, not the tracker.
This way even if a client goes down, it won't lose any updates by not

A simple RSS feed would perfect, I can even go and implement it, if
it's the only way. My question to the list is: is there really no
other way, and if so, what chances are that my RSS solution would get
accepted into official Python tracker (this way making further
development of PVS possible). Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
