#10016 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

<wfw:commentRss> may not return an RSS 2 feed

When the default feed format is not RSS 2, the <wfw:commentRss> elements in the RSS 2 feed will contain links pointing to comment feeds in a different feed format. This behavior is unexpected for some applications which always look for a RSS 2 feed.

itching to close this as a dup of #5802

punting per IRC discussion

This is not related to #5802. The feed format can be changed by a plugin. If the format is Atom, wfw:commentRss will return the Atom comment feed link because the feed format is not specified. That patch fixes to format to "rss2".

By the way, how may I join the IRC discussion?

punting back to 2.9. only critical bugs should remain in 2.8.

Thanks. I finally noticed the blog post saying that only blockers should remain:

Unfortunately it is difficult to for me to join the IRC... 21:00 UTC is the time I am sleeping. (I am in Hong Kong, the timezone is UTC+8) I hope that discussion of bugs will remain in Trac.

Can this be patched in 2.8.1? I think this is a simple quick fix.
