Proposal:  Disable notifications in Moin

Reason: Even page creations at this point are not working for some people.

How about a Wiki-Notification mailinglist, i.e. sending notifications only to one fixed address. Then add some topics to the mailinglist, e.g. for the SIGs, Packaging, Beats and other main namespaces to allow a little selection.

It'd require patches to moin. IE: We'd either have to get rid of all of the users or gut the mailing section of the wiki I guess. Just a reminder to those that aren't familiar with it. Moin iterates over every user who has page watch lists (currently in the thousands) to find out who to notify. As the number of our users increases and as the number of the pages they watch increase moin gets slower and slower on page saves.

It would be doable though. When I looked ~ a year ago, there were only two places in the code that would need to be hacked to replace the email subsystem. I imagine we could find a single point in the code to hack if we just made finding the subscribed pages function return 'fedora-wiki-commits-list r c' instead of parsing each user's config file and returning that list.
