How often to import: Delta time

If you dont want to import a feed on every cron run, set a delta time for the feed.

Roadmap

Plans for the feature (please donate):

We want to add tagging functionality to the RSS importer, so you can add metadata or tags to all news imported with this feed, i.e. a special topic).

At the moment you can only setup tagging with rules because of the datasource URL (i.e. domain of a newspaper) or topics (i.e. keywords) but not additional tags only because the source of the articles was a special RSS-Newsfeed (i.e. a feed only for one topic, we would not find out the other ways and we can not find out because of URL of the article, because the domain has more then one topic).

Additionally want to add tagging for RSS-Feed management, so you can organize many newsfeeds in the management interface with tags.
