Reduce RSS feed retries during times of site trouble #306
I can only guess that this feature applies to all error types, however, I just observed it in the context of the RSS feed reader with the following temporary error... "503 Service Temporarily Unavailable".
The feed is retried several times a minutes in fairly rapid succession and ng doesn't back away. It would be better to stop this after a number of fails and simply resume normal activity at the next interval - if that too fails a number times, rinse repeat.
