There is a Git repository that I want to be notified about. Any notificatioin would be fine: RSS would be the best, but Twitter or similar notifications are acceptable too. Unfortunately, the page is not understood by Twitterfeed:

Your feed might be empty or missing publish dates or GUIDs

Is there another service that understands Git history and pushes a notification when a new commit is made?

Actually this open source project has most of the code that would be needed to create such a service.

Just to double check, this feed doesn't work for you? – John C Oct 4 '12 at 7:00
@JohnC: Whao, it works! Where did you find it? Could not find any documentation about this feature... please post as an answer so that I can accept – nic Oct 4 '12 at 7:15
I see now in the HTML source: <link type="application/atom+xml" rel="alternate" href="/feeds/p/leveldb/gitchanges/basic"> Too bad Firefox tells me nothing about it. – nic Oct 4 '12 at 7:16
What version of Firefox are you running? I tried that page in Opera 12 and SeaMonkey 2.12.1 and both found it. – dsolimano Oct 4 '12 at 12:42

To answer to the question the feed is here.

As a bonus note: Firefox removed the RSS button over a year ago because allegedly only 3% of users used it. You can still check if a page has an RSS by going BookmarksSubscribe to this page or by right clicking on the tool bar, selecting Customise and dragging the icon back to its rightful place.
