Since Jan 12 this Yahoo bot has been getting my rss feed twice per day. I'm not in Yahoo News so I don't get the main Yahoo-NewsCrawler (And that one I don't think goes after rss feeds.). Also not to be confused with YahooFeedSeeker/1.0 that is for my.yahoo.com and has been getting the rss feed as normal.

Is this for some future new Yahoo News feature? - - [28/Jan/2005:01:46:25 +0200] "GET /rss.xml HTTP/1.0" 304 - "-" "Yahoo-NewsCrawler Test (http:/ /help.yahoo.com/help/us/news)"
