The only choice here is to either remove the functionality from the skin or put the script in. This skin is for Dharma, and Dharma has no such <feed> capability.  Can the user disable this in the skin?

OT: Agreed that some sort of a news feed might be a nice addition to the addons system, though I think it would need some sort of page to aggregate all such feeds.  After all, we don't want to overwhelm the user with a bunch of information that they may not care about.

Sorry guys but is this a yes or no?

I agree that a feed url in the addon.xml would be a good idea but this was
requested to get Ellipsis up to scratch for submission on the repo.

Not cool.

Just add the script and if in the future you provide a similar core
feature, deprecate the script.

(Oh and btw, I agree that a definable feed as a core feature for at
least skins makes sense.)
