I have released rss2irc 0.4, with some improvements from the field:

- fix a problem connecting with irc.quakenet.org (Radoslav Dorcik)
- feed polling now recovers from transient failures
- can poll a local file: uri as well as remote uris
- more robust new item detection, with some alternate strategies  
- --idle option, waits for channel inactivity before announcing
- limit individual field sizes, preventing too many irc messages per  
- misc. output improvements
- logging improvements
- --delay now takes minutes, not seconds

See hackage for more detail. Note the new contributor! Thanks Radoslav.

darcs repo: http://joyful.com/darcsweb/darcsweb.cgi?r=rss2irc

I am currently using this to run hackagebot, darcscommitbot and other  
announce-bots on freenode. A tip: if you experiment, avoid joining the  
irc server too frequently; once per minute may be ok. Feedback and  
patches welcome. Best,
