Dear Lazyweb: Automatic emailing of Recent Changes in Mediawiki

When working with a group on a small but active wiki, it’s easy to forget to look at the Recent Changes list for timely updates. I would like an extension that sends a daily email with a digest of what changes have taken place on the wiki in the past day. By showing all recent changes in an email, users can’t accidentally miss out of developments on new pages. Additionally, people are reminded of the wiki’s existence so it doesn’t suffer bit-rot.

There are several ways the the email recipient group could be defined.

There is a hint of this behavior at Watchlist subscriptions and the PovWatch extension but the idea isn’t developed.

The MailNotification extension has the right idea but it doesn’t work.
