I have on my German sites 5 and on my English sites 3 RSS feeds, some German sites are not translated into English.

The sites have up to 900 pages.

I have an own written CMS, which creates the RSS feed.

Now is the question how many items should be in the feed?

I would think you would want to limit it to your 5 or 10 most up-to-date/recently added/newest items on your site.

I don't think you would make many friends if you had people trying to parse a 900+ page website in one feed. It depends on how often you add content to those pages. Generally an RSS feed should only contain newly updated information.

I agree, only 5-10 of the most recent, updated (not static) items.
