I've worked with US indymedia site. They do in fact use RSS
syndication. I don't see why there would be any problems using a
drupal site for this.
The usual way to get it set up is to update the info on
contact.indymedia.org. Groups get passwords for this, does anyone
have ours? If not, we can just contact indymedia.us directly and tell
them where our rss feeds are. It's still worth it to get the info
correct on contact for other reasons though.
