The fact that we have so many wiki users right now is all the more
reason for me to get the WikiNotify features working. This is a feature
that mails out a list of "pages which have changed" every x number of
days/hours for those that subscribe to the notifications. I believe
users can subsribe to the entire web or just a certain page. This
feature is a bit helpful to keep users in touch with what is going on.

Last time I checked, it didn't work. But it works on my personal twiki,
so there's no reason why it shouldn't work on salaam.
