Basic Auth (for personalized RSS-Feed)

although we may look at it at work at some point.

implement it anyway. I’ll open a ticket in the bug-system for http basic
auth support and will attach a patch to it as soon as I am done (unless
someone else already has done it by then). Does that sound ok?

Best regards / MfG,
