Hello Tasha,

Some months ago I had a look at those files and I didn't manage to
make them work
I think we should remove them from the codebase to avoid confusion.

> I've been reviewing the sample templates and configuration files for custom RSS.  On my system, these are installed here:  /usr/share/koha/bin/cronjobs/rss.  I'm stuck on where to place the XML that is produced in order to make the output accessible/subscribable via the OPAC.
> I've tried placing the XML files into koha/opac/cgi-bin/opac and into koha/opac/cgi-bin/opac/rss.  Then, I tried accessing the files (with permissions set to 755) using the following guesses at URL scheme:
> http://mycatalog.com/cgi-bin/koha/lastAcquired.xml (results in a blank page that has only the words "not found" in the upper left)
> http://mycatalog.com/cgi-bin/koha/rss/lastAcquired.xml (results in 500 internal server error)
> http://mycatalog.com/lastAcquired.xml (results in an Error 404 in the OPAC, "Sorry, the requested page is not available")
> I'm sure the issue is a matter of ignorance on my part as to what the best and acceptable locations are for placing "local" files.  I apologize for that, but please know I invested a couple hours before asking.  Thanks in advance if anyone has tips as to where to place the files, and then, how to access them.
