Project RSS feed enhancements

The Projects RSS feed has no way of directly clicking on the project URL. The URL is the votes page; the title and URL are not included in the . If this is unintended, I suggest one of the following: change the to the project URL, and have a link to the votes page at the end of the ; or keep the the same but repeat the title, with a link to the URL, at the start of the .

Unfortunately, MetaTalk strips out tags, and their contents, but not in preview. So much for my leet formatting.

Let's try that again:

Yeah, I was torn on what to use as the link. Sometimes blogs that have their links go to an outside site instead of the page talking about the subject and it kind of bugs me.

But I guess I could keep the title as the title of the site, link as the site's link, then put the description in with a hard coded link to the voting page.

Now though...if you want to click on a project page (for example to see who has voted for it), I'm assuming you can't get to it (via the rss feed) without voting for it. Could there also be a [project] link or something similar?

Actually, the vote link in the RSS goes to the vote listing pages, it doesn't cast a vote. I'll make that clearer later on.
