Wikipedia getting support for FeaturedFeeds!

Wikimedia spoke about the update:

For now, links to the feeds only appear in page metadata; in the future, we will add them to the sidebar on main pages, if communities wish so.

FeaturedFeeds integrates with the existing main page infrastructure: it uses data from templates that show content depending on the current date.

Here are some feed links available from the Wikipedia English homepage:
