rss2irc is an irc bot created by Don Stewart to watch rss feeds and  
announce new items on irc. I have been tweaking and testing it for a  
while, and have taken up the maintainer reins. I'm happy to announce  
release 0.3, with:

- reliable http networking
- irc flood protection
- better error handling & reporting
- extensive debugging output
- Atom support
- more useful defaults (enter channel silently, hide email addresses  
- precise control of irc output, including regexp rewrites
- installable on mac osx

Feedback and patches welcome. I am currently using it to run a number  
of announce-bots on freenode, including hackagebot and darcscommitbot.  
(A tip: if you experiment, avoid joining the irc server too  
frequently; once per minute may be ok.)
