Hi George !
I am only answering to the parts of your mail that I have
produced a solution for. The rest will have to wait, like RSS...

So, I have changed that behaviour. Links are now direct, and descriptions
Non-developers Contribution [Description]
The Description Link only shows up if there is something behind,
and also only if that is recommended.

I have also finally changed this. 200 bytes are shown by default for a
news item, and now only if the content size is bigger than 200, the
'Read More...' is shown.

I have changed this, so that now the 20 latest changes are shown.

I have removed the topic "XML mailing list". It is now added as a link
inside the subject "XML".

We have enough time at the LinuxTag ZopeCon to talk about all these issues
among the other Zopies. I would like to talk more with mindlace and
DC about integration, but I am too busy preparing for the conference.

Thanks again for your support !
