#21: RSS feed links asking user to log in

Comment (by nacin):

 Dug into this. If you are logged out, you see a standard RSS link. If you
 are logged in, you see a /login redirect. This is to ensure you can access
 an RSS feed of a private resource. In the case of our Tracs on
 WordPress.org, there is no private information — it would be totally fine
 to just not send any of these through /login. Unfortunately there is no
 way to turn this off in Trac.

 The redirection code in Trac then declines to decode the URL-encoded
 referer parameter. I am not sure why that occurs, or why it might work on
 other Tracs. I can't find any issues upstream.
