I've modified the <link> tag to remove the trailing slash; the trailing slash 
is XHTML 1.0 compliant, but not HTML 4.0 compliant, unfortunately.

I've also made modifications so that "$local_conf_commits = OFF" will both 
disable the link from being inserted as well as prevent the RSS feed from 
working.  If people would prefer a separate option for doing these 
activities, we can work on that.

This feature was intended as a potential solution for bug#15670 
(https://www.mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=15670); we're still waiting to 
hear if it's acceptable or not.

The filename (cvs_rdf.html) was chosen as a way to fit into our current 
project framework with as little modifications as possible.  You'll notice 
other pages RSS feeds added to the site have similar filenames (but mostly 
ending in .php).  We try to make sure the Content-Type header is served 
correctly, so while it may be ugly, the RSS feed should work properly.

I'm not sure what type of filtering you would like to see to the RSS feed.  If 
you have recommendations, feel free to file a feature request in bugzilla.

Users would be able to see all project CVS commits (except www/protected 
commits) - this was intended as both a way to let users see what's going on 
with a project as well as a way for developers to keep apprised of each 
others actions.


PS. I'm not sure if it's the language difference or something else, but please 
try to phrase your requests a little nicer; we are pretty willing to help our 
projects out.
