Thanks for the suggestions. But I do need an approved list. This is a group decision and not something I can presume on my own. :) We need to put any proposed list to a simple vote.

Even with my nominal C++ skills, the code snippets are straightforward enough that I should be able to provide a patch. Just copy and past URLs. :)

We should keep the default list limited to three feeds. We are providing a simple functional test with the default feeds and not a marketing or proselytizing campaign.

Second, we need to limit the very first fetch. New users do not need or want a few hundred news items. :) They only need to see that Akregator is functioning. We should choose feeds that do not accumulate a dozen articles every day.

If Trinity does not offer an RSS feed, then we should select sites that are free/libre software and generic about desktops.

BTW, Trinity should offer an RSS feed. :) A news item once a month is sufficient for our team size.
