This makes the "featured content" available and share-able in more machine
readable format and also gives many possibilities.
1. Blogs / Websites can now carry content feeds from Wikipedia /
2. Feeds can be posted automatically to facebook pages to share featured
3. Mobile and apps (but untill fonts / rendering is fixed, it might not be
as much useful)
I just tried to pull up "On This Day" content from Tamil Wikipedia onto my
blog with a widget, it was just matter of few minutes to make it
happen. Please share this with content websites and if they are interested
in giving us some space, please take this forward. Let me know if you need
help in setting up these for your wiki's.
This will however be fruitful only if featured content gets
generated consistently. You might also want to read more about importance
of Front Page content(in Tamil Wiki Community) here

Subject: [Wikitech-l] FeaturedFeeds deployed
To: Wikimedia developers <wikitec...@lists.wikimedia.org>
Yesterday we deployed FeaturedFeeds to the cluster (thanks,
Arthur!) Everything looks good so far, examples of feeds: , .
We haven't enabled feed links in the sidebar like on our staging wiki
at  - I wonder if we should enable them on opt-in or opt-out basis.
Overall, I'd apreciate your critics, comments, suggestions. Also,
please assist your local communities in seting up their feeds, especially
if you know less common languages.
