I created a custom template with its own custom query. Use case: a page for just sticky posts.

Added sticky.php to the theme with

 * Template Name: Sticky

and the following loop:

$query = new WP_Query(array('post__in' => get_option( 'sticky_posts' ), 'posts_per_page'=>10, 'ignore_sticky_posts'=>1, 'paged' => ( get_query_var('paged') ? get_query_var('paged') : 1 ) ));
if($query->have_posts()) : while($query->have_posts()) : $query->the_post();
endwhile; endif;

Next, I add an empty page called Sticky with sticky.php as template.

Now, when I go to example.com/sticky, the selection works fine, pagination included. However, example.com/sticky/feed doesn't show a proper feed, instead it has an empty comments feed, as if it were a post.

So what should I do to have it output a feed of posts, like all other archive pages do?

Start with adding your new feed name and custom function through add_feed, then dont't forget to flush rewrite rules (just once).

You can find several WordPress functions that will help your formatting the Feed XML.
