[Owasp-leaders] RSS plugin for Media Wiki

We did have a RSS reader on the wiki, but had to remove it because it slowed
the site down drastically. The current plugins available fetch from the
feeds and put the content temporally in the DB. I frequently had to recover
the site. The Google reader on the front page can sometimes slow the site to
a crawl as well. Advantage to the Google reader is that its not integrated
into the wiki, just fetched by the client. I agree a RSS feed would be
great, but that does have one disadvantage. All this great content that
could be useful to the security community would be lost if not entered in
the wiki. Great for chapter meeting announcements, not so good for articles
or project updates.
