make an RSS Feed static with rewrite?

Thank you for a great plugin! I have successfully integrated the plugin to make every single Page and Post static. However, it's missing the RSS Feed. The video describing the config procedure seems to be for an older version; the "Advanced" tab has different options from those shown in the video.

I managed to set up the feed on my local test WP installation with the options:
- use local file system
- rewrite #^feed$# into feed.xml
- rewrite whenever anything is changed

The live site uses SFTP (works so far). But the rewrites don't work.
- rewrite #^feed$# into feed.xml results in a feed.xml file on the static site. This is however NOT the XML feed but a 404 page not found page.

So my question is:

What is the recommended setting for an RSS Feed and what am I missing? Do I need to write an extra plugin for this?

Having the same trouble. Tried the plain rewrite, and also the conditional (when a page or post is refreshed, then also rewrite anything matching feed). Neither did what I hoped they'd do, and my static RSS files are still not appearing on the published site.
