RSS feed for patch information no longer updated


As already was reported in
https://forums.suse.com/showthread.php?12700-RSS-feeds-for-available-patches-not-updating,
SUSE's RSS feeds informing about security issues (as well as those about
bug fixes) have not been updated since August 7 this year.
https://www.novell.com/newsfeeds/rss/patches/security_notifications-daily.xml
reports:

> Novell Patches: - All SUSE Products -
> The latest patches for - All SUSE Products -
> Security update for pidgin 13717
> 7. August 2018, 08:00
> Abstract:

> CVEs: CVE-2017-2640
> Bugs: 1028835


It was tried to bring this to SUSE's attention, but it seems that no-one
internally was able to handle the technical issue - and not even the
page listing those non-updated "news feeds" was expanded to carry some
"sorry, currently out of order" notice.

I am willing to believe that preparing for next year's challenges is
putting SUSE internal staff under high pressure, but keeping that RSS
feed about security issues online, without any notice about it currently
not being updated, seems a non-acceptable way of handling
security-related issues.

Regards,
J
