Hello Dustin,

a big apology for the very long delay in replying. I will add a ticket 
to trac as requested.  Let me first add the item pretty much based on 
the text below and add the feeder.py as is for the moment.  I will then 
try and hack a variant that fits directly into 
buildbot/status/web/baseweb.py, if that is the best place to add the 
feed feature but I am open to all suggestions.  Many thanks again for 
taking the time to look at the extension.

All the best,
