I'm using (JAVA based) RSSOwl, which is showing the summary provided 
together with the feed (which makes perfect sense to me). If there's no 
such summary, I usually tend to just ignore the whole feed ;-)

Fair enough, if I want to see this happening I'll have to do that basic 
work ;-)

As this is not very high on my prio list, no promisses though ...

P.S: From other devel projects, I see the combination of mailman and 
subversion providing the info as outlined pretty often. If it turns out 
that trac isn't able to provide this info easily, this might be the way 
to go anyway ...
