The upcoming release of rss2email should fix this. I will try to release it officially as soon as possible.
Comment 2 Lindsey Smith 2009-01-06 14:12:10 EST
Python 2.6 warnings should be eliminated in the latest version, available at http://rss2email.infogami.com

many thx. Build ~21 hours ago and available in rawhide now

One note (quoting from the rss2email changelog):
> Attempted to incorporate Debian/Ubuntu patches into the mainstream release 

I also have one patch to make rss2email use a subdir in the users home dir (e.g. ~/.rss2email); see:


Would be nice to get something like that upstream. Ohh, and it would be really nice as well if r2e, its manpage and the changelog could be bundled together into a "real (python/tar.gz) package" upstream

The r2e fedora uses can be found here:
