[maemo-users] [maemo-users] RSS News Reader application only shows a few articles

I'm just looking for a sanity check here.

I've raised bug #953 (https://maemo.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=953) which questions why the N800 RSS news reader application only displays the most recent one or two articles from each feed, even though each feed may have 40+ articles available.

According to the RSS "specification" (comment #2 - is this specification available online?) this behaviour is correct, which in my mind leaves the news reader application fundamentally broken. When using regular updates, the application will only ever display a handful of the latest articles, deleting any previous articles you may not have read, which is useless!! :)

I'd appreciate any feedback here (or in the bug - even a vote) to confirm if you believe the current behaviour is correct (in which case it's just myself and Jakub that have issues!) or if you agree with myself and Jakub - the news reader is broken.

Many thanks
