Bug Description

It would be very useful to be able to subscribe to the RSS feed of a search result set.

1. I search for all critical bugs open on Malone.

2. I'm shown a link to subscribe to the RSS feed of those search results.

3. Every time a new bug appears in those results, a new message for that feed shows up in my RSS reader.

This would be an easy-to-use, powerful way to track different kinds of bugs reported in Malone, with serious "Wow" factor.

Changed in malone:
importance: Untriaged → Wishlist
status: Unconfirmed → Confirmed

I too would love to have an RSS feed of bugs...

Ideally, it would be cool to have bugs.launchpad.net/.../+bugs-rss

so that bugs.launchpad.net/~newz/+bugs-rss would show bugs assigned to me, and bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-website/+bugs-rss would show bugs on the ubuntu-website product.

You could then go on to have:
bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-website/+bugs-rss?field.searchtext=download&orderby=-importance
&search=Search&field.status%3Alist=Unconfirmed&field.status%3Alist=Confirmed
&field.status%3Alist=In+Progress&field.status%3Alist=Needs+Info&field.status%3Alist=Fix+Committed
&field.assignee=&field.bug_reporter=&field.omit_dupes=on&field.has_patch=&field.has_no_package=

to see all bugs matching the search word "download".

The goal is to help focus on solving the critical problems. When tracking bugs via e-mail, it can sometimes be easy to get sidetracked on noisy problems that are low in priority.

Is it implicit in this request that rss feeds should be available for non-bugs as well? If not, consider this request #49752++.

@Wim there is no plans for this at the present as we're currently working on other areas such as bugs marked critical which has a priority than ones marked Low.
