Subject Re: Is doing PubSubHubub worth it ?
Date Sun, 05 Sep 2010 09:41:35 GMT
Hmmm, you're right, it looks like a Jira item doesn't exist for that.
Ok, I've created two Jira tickets in the backlog:

ESME-271 - Provide authenticated Atom/RSS feeds of timelines -
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ESME-271

ESME-272 - Pubsubhubbub-enable timeline feeds -
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ESME-272

I'm not sure if that's enough information, or even if they contain the
right design decisions. Let's discuss further on the list or in the
comments of the Jira issues.
