It depends on how you want to distribute the information but it's all done using reports
. These take information out of your channels and puts it all together into a single report, the format of which is controlled by a template file. So, they can output XML (e.g. if you wanted to publish a feed), HTML (e.g. if you want to upload to a web site), plain-text (e.g. if you wanted to send out a simple email). You could even output to LaTex and then generate a PDF from that, or CSV, or anything else you want.
If you want to publish an RSS feed, you would use a template that outputs XML (in the RSS format), then upload it to a web server where people can get at it. Reports can be run manually or configured to run at regular intervals, the latter probably being your best choice since it means your web site will be automagically kept up-to-date.
Note that the 2.3.4 beta
added a lot of new features for reporting.

Finally, one thing to keep in mind is that if you want to publish RSS feeds, it's still not very mainstream technology so depending on who your clients are, there might the question of educating them about what RSS is and how to use it. But we can talk about that later...
