     1= Using RSS with Trac = 
     4Several of the Trac modules support content syndication using the RSS (Really Simple Syndication) XML format. 
     5Using the RSS subscription feature in Trac, you can easily monitor progress of the project, a set of issues or even changes to a single file. 
     7Trac supports RSS feeds in: 
     9 * TracTimeline --  Use the RSS feed to '''subscribe to project events'''.[[br]]Monitor overall project progress in your favorite RSS reader. 
     10 * TracTickets, TracReports, and TracQuery -- Allows syndication of report and ticket query results.[[br]]Be notified about important and relevant issue tickets. 
     11 * TracBrowser and TracRevisionLog -- Syndication of file changes.[[br]]Stay up to date with changes to a specific file or directory. 
     13== How to access RSS data == 
     14Anywhere in Trac where RSS is available, you should find a small orange '''XML''' icon, typically placed at the bottom of the page. Clicking the icon will access the RSS feed for that specific resource. 
     16'''Note:''' Different modules provide different data in their RSS feeds. Usually, the syndicated information corresponds to the current view. For example, if you click the RSS link on a report page, the feed will be based on that report. It might be explained by thinking of the RSS feeds as an ''alternate view of the data currently displayed''.
