wiki news feed

A wiki news feed converts RSS feed items, typically each representing a news story?, to wiki page?s. To delete page?s or ignore those that are irrelevant is probably a necessary feature/utility.

Some large public wikis offer their recent changes as an RSS feed - this is not the same thing - see RSS feed from mediawiki? and RSS feed from tikiwiki? which has nothing to do with "news" as a category.

why it's required to do OP


Proponents of open politics itself argue that:

"A wiki news feed can radically reduce the amount of time spent gathering evidence/source/authority and refocus effort on issue/position/argument. Also, stable URIs for news stories is a public service, one not offered by mass media?." - Craig Hubley

where you'd see such pages


At openpolitics.ca itself one would see these pages exclusively in namespaces named for their sources:

Pages created by a wiki news feed would follow strict naming conventions just as those namespaces do now, e.g.:

Any conversion to deal with punctuation? or claims likely to be true only as of a given time horizon, would be part of that importing feature, though it may consult a senior editor for approval when any changes to the feed's own title are required.
