Since several weeks or months, I noticed the descriptions in http(s):// have disappeared.
When you open the raw stream, yan can see that the XML description tag is here but empty.
The main packages RSSes, such as, are fine.
This task depends upon

The last time `live` branch rss.php was touched was on "Sat May 12 13:35:11 2018 +0200," and it does indeed seem problematic on live.

We've discovered some commits which found their way into `master` which address a few issues, fixing the RSS feed. However, as you state, there are no descriptions present; there is an element, the element's content is empty: `<description />`.

This has however been the case since the date mentioned above (or before), which is over two years ago. We'll create a GitLab issue for the `<description />` issue in the PHP implementation. Changes in `master` that fix the RSS feed issues have been pushed to `live`. Production at will be updated within a day or two.

Thanks for reporting this, Fabien! I'll post another comment with the GitLab issue when it's been established.

Thanks @hashworks for the fixes there :)
