Description

Chinese Wikipedia is listed as a supported language for receiving featured article content with Wikifeeds [1,2], and there appears to be a Chinese featured article for today [3]. But for today's date (August 3, 2021), the Wikifeeds featured endpoint [4] is not returning a featured article.

This has been a persistent and regular problem we've encountered across several of the Wikipedia languages listed as supported [2] by the Wikifeeds featured article endpoint.
