      New list member here.  Been using MediaWiki for a while now.  If
this isn't the list to ask this would someone please direct me to the
proper list?  Thank you.

      First, is there any way to use an external user authentication
system in MediaWiki.  In our case the linux authentication controled
by /etc/nsswitch.conf.

      Second, is there any way to have an RSS feed either in to or out
of MediaWiki?  I'm thinking of watchlist info for example out going or
a CNN feed incoming?

      Thank you.
