      Description

      Presently within Moodle 2+ you cannot view an RSS feed unless you are logged in.
      I'm not entirely sure what the system was designed to do however I think this needs to be clarified. Some mechanism for accessing RSS feeds when not logged in would be fantastic.

      Having had just a quick look at rss/file.php it is happening because the token doesn't match the users token (obviously because the user isn't logged in). However the token within the request was still generated by get_user_key. I think that some sort of persistence or allowance with the token for not logged in users would be possible.

      Cheers
      Sam
