What do we have now?
- A few issues with RSS feeds right now -- duplicate entries, etc.
- Even after those are fixed, we don't feel that RSS feeds are a long-term solution to the problem of watching site changes.
What do we want to have?
- Use cases (in order of importance)
- Spam prevention
- Watching groups of articles (e.g., articles about the DOM) for grammar and factual accuracy
- Watching for changes that need to be localized (keep in mind that we will also have localization dashboards that should help with this)
- It should be possible for a reviewer to keep track of all changes using this page.
- One idea: Providing a revision "inbox" where revisions can be read or unread. Might be difficult to implement.
- Another idea: Showing everything since the user last clicked a "Save my place" button.
What steps can we take to get there?
- Bug 800053: Talk with Les and David about how feasible a revision "inbox" would be
- Bug 797589: Start implementing a revision dashboard MVP
- Bug 785993: Report the number of words / characters changed
- Bug 681925: Ability to ban users
- Bug 764004: Longer-term, it would be nice to show only content changes (not markup changes) in diffs.
