Longer timeout for feed first fetch

Longer timeout for feed first fetch

Short, concise description of the idea
When creating a syn feed, the first fetch of the feed will timeout after 5 seconds. This should be increased.

Full description of the idea
UPDATE: On 1st submission, the moderator replied: Are you sure this is not a bug? Have you reported it to support?

Yes I have. I would consider it a bug, but apparently it is deliberate.

(old text follows)

A 5 second timeout seems rather arbitrary. The feed I am trying to syndicate loads in my web browser in ~20 seconds. This is perfectly acceptable for a human user, but livejournal wants superhuman speed.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Users have a wider array of feeds available.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • It's hard to know what the added server load might be.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • It can't be too hard to change the timeout value...
