#7257 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Create hook for between the rss/atom and channel elements in feeds

To use Blogline's "access restriction," an xml element must be inserted immediately before the "channel" tag opens, or immediately after it closes. Right now, there are no hooks to do that.

Can you add such hooks?

Here is the documentation for access:restriction in bloglines: http://www.bloglines.com/about/specs/fac-1.0

I'm attaching a patch with adds three new hooks:

I think the names are pretty self-explanatory. No hooks are needed for atom, as atom_head covers the "before channel" case.

According to the RSS Specification (http://www.rssboard.org/rss-specification), "Subordinate to the <rss> element is a single <channel> element, which contains information about the channel (metadata) and its contents". I am not sure if it is valid to add an element between <rss> and <channel>.

This extension seems to have fallen by the wayside. The link is dead and searching for it reveals just a couple of remnants. I guess it was never adopted. On that basis there doesn't seem to be much need for this enhancement.

Feel free to reopen if you still think there is a case for a new action.

Quite agree given the lack of traction on this over the last 3 years.
