I'm not using RSS for WineHQ so I just discovered that they are broken.
The behavior I'm expecting is the same as for Slashdot's RSS feed: if I 
click on 'Nasa Turns 50' I get to the page for that story.

But if I click on 'Wine Weekly News Issue 348', I get to the top of 
Wine's news page (essentially http://www.winehq.org/?news=archive). 
There's two issues with that:
 * when the page opens on my laptop the news item about WWN 348 is not 
   even visible. So for general news items we should at least link to 
   the relevant entry. That means adding anchors as currently there are 
 * for news about WWN issues the link should point straight to the 
   issue, rather than to the news about it. The same as clicking on a 
   Slashodt story does not point you to the main index but to the story 
   itself. That probably means that news items should have a url field 
   to specify where the RSS entry should point to.
