So taking the extensions mentioned on that page one at a time:
1. Comments extension.
I think this refers to ckanext-disqus. Anyone looked at that recently?
Can you provide a screenshot? If not I can take a look.
2. Follow extension.
We are currently implementing following as a feature in CKAN core but
it's not ready yet. There is also the ckanext-follower extension which I
guess is what this refers to:
We're not sure if it works on CKAN 1.6. I could try out the extension to
see if I can get it working to take a screenshot, but it might be worth
removing this from the website until we've finished rewriting it in CKAN
3. TODO extension
I guess this refers to ckanext-issues:
Nobody has touched that for a while. I'll take a quick look and see if
it still works with CKAN 1.6 and try to get a screenshot.
As far as I know this is an in-progress feature? Or is there an existing
extension for it?
5. RSS/Atom feeds
If you visit a dataset's page there is a History tab, e.g.
We should probably put a link to the feed somewhere on the dataset or
history page to make it easier to find.

By the way there is obviously a problem that CKAN has a lot of
extensions, but extensions that worked with older versions of CKAN often
don't work with newer versions. Making this situation more stable is
something the dev team are currently looking into.
