RSS feeds are inherently unauthenticated, and access to private group annotations requires authentication, so you can’t use https://hypothes.is/stream.rss or https://hypothes.is/stream.atom to receive feeds of private group annotation activity.

As an alternative, you can use this tool, created by our Director of Integrations: https://github.com/judell/h_notify.
