Timeline RSS entries truncated
|Reported by:||Christopher Lenz||Owned by:||Christian Boos|
In all previous versions of Trac, you could have the entries in the HTML timeline be truncated so that the timeline remains compact and readable, but still get the full entry text in the RSS feed. That behavior makes a lot of sense because you normally consume RSS feeds by reading one item a time, so you can afford to have the full text displayed. The new behavior requires one to visit the corresponding page to read the full text for the vast majority of check-ins, tickets, etc.
It should be possible to configure the timeline to show truncated entries in the HTML version and non-truncated entries in the RSS version. And this should be the default, as it has been in the past.
Personally, I think this is a fairly serious bug that severely limits the usefulness of the timeline RSS feed in 0.11.
