A beta of the Yahoo RSS aggregator appeared -- and subsequently disappeared -- from the personalized 'My Yahoo' service late Wednesday, setting off buzz among RSS enthusiasts that a thumbs-up from a big-name company like Yahoo would speed up consumer adoption of the syndication format.

Nice find.

Do you think Yahoo will charge the RSS feed supplier for distribution?

I don't think Yahoo would offer anything for free. Probably similar to Yahoo Shopping model.
It will be free for a time so suppliers can get hooked and then it will be a charged service to get your feeds in. My guess.

Is this releated to this thread [webmasterworld.com] from early October 2003?

Oh wait, this means yahoo will allow importing of rss news?

If its for my Yahoo then it will most probably allow people to bring in rdf/rss files from their favorite blogs.
