[pmwiki-users] Issue with RSS feeds on password-protected pages

As far as I can tell the rss password is useless unless you first have  
read access. I invite anyone who knows how to get an rss feed without  
first having read access to tell how to do it.

If you are concerned about people reading the page, you can start the  
page with (:if false:) and put the following in your config.php:

## Limit source and diff viewing to editors
$HandleAuth['source'] ='edit';
$HandleAuth['diff'] ='edit';

I think that will keep the page fairly confidential, even though  
everyone has read access.

Good luck.
