There is, afaik, no such feed yet.

There really should be a way of fetching this data, at least for the  
Atom APP.  I've been considering recently where a Comment Collection  
should be placed, possibly at the top-level beside posts and media. If  
a subcollection / collection query / etc of Comments were available,  
then an Atom feed could be provided for both the requested use case  
(feed of all comments on posts by a given author) and others not yet  

The APP really needs to reach feature parity with the xmlrpc  
interface. Optimally, one or both should reach parity with the Admin  
interface as a whole.

How can we manage (Post new, Put updates/moderate, Delete, Get feeds  
of) comments with AtomPUB?
