Comment (by birgire):

 Thanks for the feedback @Iceable

 Good catch, regarding the {{{$rss_entries->get_error_message()}}}.

 Regarding the offset, I wrongly recalled from memory, that both items
 counts were filterable, but I checked again and it's only true for the
 second feed, via the {{{dashboard_secondary_items}}} filter. The first one
 is fixed as 1.

 So I think we could just use:

 $args['items'] = $args['items'] + 1;


 as you mentioned ... but if both were filterable, then we could have used

 min( feed_1_items_count, feed_2_items_count )


 instead of the compromise of {{{$args['items'] = $args['items'] + 5;}}}

 The WordPress Code Standard via phpcs suggested using {{{lower-case.php}}}
 kind of file name
 and I noticed the same for files in e.g.
 {{{tests/phpunit/tests/customize/}}}. I will have to look further into

 Regarding the multi-feed feature, there are also some
 [http://simplepie.org/wiki/faq/typical_multifeed_gotchas gotchas] and we
 also don't want to merge the items.
