      Seems like google wants to get more information about the client requesting the feed, otherwise it sends out forbidden access back. Please have a look at this post:

      http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=5195078&messageID=9768533

      That explains how to set request user agent. AFAIR we put the user agent setting into the informa code base, although it might be after the 0.7 was released, so you might want to give the svn head a chance.

      Cheers,
