Well, if it's doing that because the pubDate in the RSS entry is older
than 14 days, then you're going to see entries seemingly randomly
disappear. You'll have to bring this up with your aggregator; file a bug
with them.

Or it's a bug in gitweb; I'm not familiar enough with RSS/Atom to know
what it's supposed to be doing. But it looks like gitweb changed a long
time ago to use the 'author date' and not the 'commit date', and a
cursory search doesn't show complaints about it. And cgit seems to do
the same thing, so it seems like they are intentionally using that date.
