That's correct, this downloads individual feed items so that they can be read even when you're offline.

A copy of the last feed received for each channel is kept in each user's <tt>Logs</tt> sub-directory, so you could possibly run a XSL (or some other processor) over those to generate something.
But an early cut of a new version of Awasu has just gone out to the testers that let channel pages and reports be served up via the API e.g. you just open http://127.0.0.1:2604/reports/get?id=12345
in your browser to run a report and get the results back. Very cool

No, it's just a standard hook that gets called each time a channel updates and receives at least one new item. However...

Probably the best way to do this in the context of what you guys are trying to do is to write a custom hook, similar to <tt>SendEmail</tt>, that stores the information in a database (or you could use the <tt>MySQL</tt> hook
). Then you regularly run a process that sweeps over the database and sends out your emails. You could even do this as an Awasu channel - it does the main bit of work and then reports its results as a feed that you can monitor in Awasu!:clap:

This was added in 2.4.1
