Go to qa-feed.php

And try changing

        case 'unanswered':
            qa_feed_load_ifcategory('main/unanswered_qs_title', 'main/unanswered_qs_in_x',
                qa_db_unanswered_qs_selectspec(null, 0, null, false, $full, $count)



        case 'unanswered':
            qa_feed_load_ifcategory('main/hot_qs_title', 'main/hot_qs_in_x',
                qa_db_hot_qs_selectspec(null, 0, null, false, $full, $count)

Now go to Admin panel on your website, and then to RSS and click on "Feed for recent unanswered questions" and see for yourself if the link that is provided, works for hot questions...

You can hack it together by making the following changes to qa-feed.php:

1. Change this in the first big switch {...}:

case 'unanswered':

... to ...

case 'unanswered': case 'hot':

2. Add this in the second big switch {...}:

case 'hot':
  qa_feed_load_ifcategory('main/hot_qs_title', 'main/hot_qs_title',
    qa_db_qs_selectspec(null, 'hotness', 0, null, null, false, $full, $count)

3. Finally, change:

if ($feedtype!='search')

... to ...

if ( ($feedtype!='search') && ($feedtype!='hot') )

So long as you've enabled the RSS feed for answered questions, this means you can get a feed for hot questions by substituting hot.rss at the end of the feed URL. It won't show up as a link on the 'hot' page though.
