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

so that would show bugs assigned to me, and would show bugs on the ubuntu-website product.

You could then go on to have:

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.
