Here is how the wiki software determines what to include in the Wiki Rss feed. Test
Different flavors of the feed
FlavorContentsURL
VerboseTopic contents up to the first horizontal line. http://fox.wikis.com/wc.dll?Wiki~WikiRss
BriefFirst paragraph only. http://fox.wikis.com/wc.dll?Wiki~WikiRss&details=1

Different aspects of the feed
You can further refine the contents of the feed by restricting your query to particular name spaces.

For example, to view changes, "Topic title only" flavor, (see above) in the VFP or Software Engineering namespaces only, the URL would be:
http://fox.wikis.com/wc.dll?Wiki~WikiRss&details=1&ns=288
Note the "ns=288" in the URL above which is the addition of the VFP and Software Engineering values in the table below:

Enhancement Request: Consider a lastBuildDate optional tag for the header, so automated processes can figure out when they last read the feed.

Enhancement Request: How about a "headlines only" feed for those of us who want to come to the site to read the article, but skim hundreds of headlines in our aggregators, perhaps in the form of an optional parameter, or as a different link, using an XML transform similar to the XML magic on the wgcs page? -- tr Done!-- Steven Black
