rss2email is a python script that lets you subscribe to a list of
RSS or Atom feeds and get new posts sent to you by email. It is
generally run via cron, but can be run manually as well.
This is a python 3 rewrite of the original rss2email project by
Lindsey Smith at AllThingsRSS. It does not run on python 2.

Quick Howto
Create a new feed database:
> r2e new
Edit $HOME/.config/rss2email.cfg if you so desire. Unless you've installed
a local sendmail-equivalent MTA, you'll need to edit the SMTP options.
Your local database is stored in $HOME/.local/share/rss2email.json
Subscribe to some feeds:
> r2e add freebsd-news
Avoid the "first run flood" of all existing posts from the feed:
> r2e run --no-send
Run it through cron. Feel free to increase or decrease the interval.
0 */4 * * * %%PREFIX%%/r2e run
There is only output if there's an error (which you probably want emailed to you
from cron anyway).
