Apparently some of the more popular feed readers can’t handle HTTP authentication, SSL feeds, or a combination of the two. No matter! GitHub private feeds are now accessible via a private token.

Note that whenever you change your password, your token will change. This is a feature – if you’re ever worried about your token getting out there, just change your password.

The old, HTTP authenticated feeds still work without a token, too.

Update: Thanks to Mislav, the feed now validates (whoops) and works over SSL.
