Description Sherool 2007-02-20 09:39:14 UTC
The spoken Wikipedia project on EnWiki have set up a podcast/webast/whatever you want to call it 
RSS feed of selected spoken articles. However currently the feed (see supplied URL) is beeing 
served with the text/x-wiki content type because application/rss+xml is not an "approved" 
content type. Some RSS readers may therefore not accept such feeds.

I suggest adding application/rss+xml to the list of "approved" content types for all Wikimedia 
servers. As far as I know it's not a security risk, and it would be nice to be eable to serve 
"true" RSS feeds.

This would be a security hole, as it would allow arbitrary HTML content to be
rendered in browsers.
