Could the project add automatic reload in the
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1800">
And if that gets added, when the index.html page is
loaded, check the feeds to see if they are up to date
by adding the function call:
as one of the first lines in the index.html.
And assuming that those two features get added, make
the refresh time an entry in the "My Settings" page.
Something simular to the attachment.
