You have to search better :)
All the maemo feeds are advertised in my browser, and there is a rss feed
logo too on the top of the pages. I don't see any problem here.

> 1) At least for http://maemo.org/news,


> 2) definitely one for http://maemo.org/news/announcements,


> 3) definitely one for http://maemo.org/news/events,


> 4) definitely one for http://maemo.org/news/planet-maemo,


> 5) possibly for http://maemo.org/news/jobs,


> 6) possibly a feed that combines 1-5, so that you can just have one big

Feed with the last items:  http://maemo.org/news/latest.xml

> 7) definitely for the user forum (http://maemo.org/community/maemo-users/

> 8) definitely for the developer forum

> 10) having an option for each project to have its own RSS feed (so you

> general garage RSS feed),
> 11) I've seen software download sites (like All About Symbian's software

> the following RSS feeds from the maemo.org/Downloads for:
>    * New packages for All Maemo versions
>    * Updated packages for All Maemo versions
>    * New packages for OS2008
>    * Updated packages for OS2008
>    * New packages for OS2007
>    * Updated packages for OS2007
>    * New packages for OS2006
>    * Updated packages for OS2006
> Further, I would suggest that the actual pages in question have an "rss"
> link, with the logo, on the actual page (each webpage I've given a URL

> example, look at http://maemo.org/news/community/ ... but also add that
