My RSS reader (feature in Thinderbird) no longer shows this info.
When I look at a page in an RSS reader the info of who edited the page and who is the first thing I look at so it is a real loss that this is no longer visible.
I think this feature will cause more harm than good.
Users will click on it and forget and forever not know that the text could be there.
As I was reverting the SVN 8831 (Item1640: stop stripping newlines of the front of TMPL:DEFs.) Templates.pm back to the version in the 4.0.1 distro this problem went away.
It seems SVN 8831 does quite a lot of damage.
CDot fixed this with SVN 8836
