RSS Feed Garbled in Outlook

Issue #700 new
Jay Gindin created an issue

When I add the RhodeCode RSS feed (1.5.1) to Microsoft Outlook 2010, the result looks like this:

foo (Foo Bar) commited on Wed, 19 Dec 2012 10:06:04
branch: default
tag: tip
changesest: 9a217641
Add a comment.   M build.gradle (2 lines added, 0 lines removed)  diff --git a/build.gradle b/build.gradle --- a/build.gradle +++ b/build.gradle @@ -3,6 +3,8 @@  group = ""  version = "${hgBranch}-${buildNumber}"   +// Whatever. +  configurations {    compile.exclude module: 'dist'    // This is a comment 

It seems that Outlook is "helpfully" removing "extra" newlines. While there is a setting that fixes this for emails, it does not seem to have any effect on RSS feeds.

It seems that if there is an extra space character at the end of each line, Outlook will not do this...see

    I'm not sure about that, basically you ask for breaking the diff data (by adding whitespaces at the end) to fix issue in outlook.

    Yes, unfortunately that is what I'm asking for :-(

    I'm not sure how it would fit into the RhodeCode architecture, but perhaps make this an option, which is turned off by default?
