If I would like to track edits to a Google Doc or inputs to a Google Form by receiving an RSS feed thereof, how do I go about doing so?

Saw this answer on a blog:

First the document in question must be publicly accessible. Private documents 
cannot have an RSS feed. 

Click the SHARE button in the top right and share it with others as 
"Collaborators" and not just "Viewers". Next, click the link on the same page,
toward the right that says "View RSS".

This functionality has been REMOVED by google. Yay for downgrades and ignoring user requests! There are many help requests for this feature in Google Docs help.. – user14786 Nov 11 '11 at 18:07

In, for example, a Google Spreadsheet, you can use the File/Publish command. It lets you create a RSS feed for the spreadsheet.
