            Bug ID: 3771
           Summary: RSSyl plugin does not understand relative URL in
                    item's <link> tag
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.14.1
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows 7
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P3
         Component: Plugins/RSSyl

Hi, example feed is https://github.com/DFHack/dfhack/releases.atom

In CM, message shows :
DFHack 0.43.05-beta1
URL: /DFHack/dfhack/releases/tag/0.43.05-beta1

Copying link confirms that it is without domain. Viewing plain RSS content, I
see that it IS provided in that exact form, without domain and protocol
Few others RSS readers (Thunderbird, firefox built-in rss reader) substitute
root domain from RSS feed header (probably from rel="self" link tag?)
I suggest to add this function to RSSyl plugin - in case there's not
protocol/domain in <link> tag of <entry> or <item> element, then substitute it
with link/domain of parent rss feed

This is minor annoyance until you click on rss links often. Unfortunately, this
is what I do and getting full link URL isn't easy as you have to type full rss
feed domain and than append the link from CM :(
