Is it possible to add extra fields into the feed?

Information I think we should have:

* Event Name
* Start
* End
* Location
* URL of Conference
* OSGeoAttending? (Yes, No, Undecided)
   Note, it is important to list big non-Open GeoSpatial conferences so 
we can avoid clashing dates
* OSGeoWikiURL for this conference

And what is the process for adding events to the RSS feed source? I can 
add some items.
