how do i access an rss feed?
RSS feeds contain specially-formatted data (RSS is a subset of RDF, an XML data format) which is not usable by most web browsers. In order to make use of RSS feeds, you will need to install a special piece of software on your system, called a RSS reader or RSS aggregator.
There are many RSS readers available (for a variety of OS platforms). Several RSS readers are hosted on SourceForge.net, including AmphetaDesk (available for MS Windows platforms, Linux and Mac OS). A number of lists of good RSS readers are available on the Internet; Google may be of use in finding an RSS reader for your OS platform.
You may use the orange XML icons on this page, or on the project-specific RSS feed pages, to access the links to the RSS feeds. The process for adding an RSS feed to your subscription list will vary from reader to reader; typically a facility to 'Add a RSS feed' or 'Add a channel' is provided (feeds are synonymous with channels) where you may enter the URL to the feed you wish to include.
