The updater feed is supposedly RSS. Except it isn't:

If yer gonna say something is RSS, then it ought to be.

Interestingly... CFFEED still processes it. It should probably error: garbage-in / garbage out.

Yeah, it's a bug. How can you say that providing an RSS feed which is not valid RSS is "not a bug"? -- Adam

Is there anything that does not work because of this? All the feed readers can read this fine without any issue. Hotfix update mechanism also works without any issue. I don't see any real need to fix it.

I didn't say there was. What I said was you can't say *it's not a bug* (which is what it was marked as when I commented. This has since changed). -- Adam
