Description of problem:
Not sure if this is a bug or a limitation of the software... If an RSS feed requires a password, Akregator is simply failing to retrieve the articles. It neither prompts the user for a password nor does it display any error message if the OPML is imported. If the secure feed is added from scratch, an incorrect "feed not found" message is diplayed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Akregator 1.5.0 (KDE 4.3.0)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install kdepim.
2. Launch akregator.
3. Import an *.opml file containing a feed that requires a password.
4. Try to fetch feed. User is neither prompted for the password nor confronted with an error message.
5. We now try to add the feed afresh: Feed->Add Feed.
as the feed name.
7. "Feed not found" error dialogue box appears, despite the fact that the feed exists and antoehr RSS feeder (Blam) can retrieve the articles.
Cannot detect this feed nor retrieve the article
Should either prompt user for a password and then retrieve the articles or, in both situations, display a correct error message that it cannot retrieve articles from secure feeds.
Hmm. Have you reported this to the KDE team?
It sounds like the sort of problem that should
be addressed in the next version of Akregator.
Thank you for taking the time to report this issue.
This is an issue that needs to be addressed by the upstream developers. Please report this at http://bugs.kde.org and then add the upstream report information to this report. We will monitor the upstream report for a resolution to this issue, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.
Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting upstream bug report URL for tracking.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks, we'll continue to track this upstream.
Fwiw, (as mentioned in the upstream report), I am not able to reproduce this using akreagator-1.6 from kde sc 4.4.0
