[pmwiki-users] Add To My Watch List

I use .htaccess and apache USER-PASS for wiki fields on my farm.
With the latest version of PMwiki this automatically assigns the
author which is wonderful.
Now I'm being asked
"Can you make it like WikiPedia? where after I log in, I can go to a
page and just click "Watch" and even if I am in the edit window,
editing... I can just click "Watch" and then I get email
notifications when changes are made."
Before I go digging the PMwiki list and cook books, I wanted to ask
first. If anyone can just point me to the right cook book, recipe
that will be useful.
If the above model is not an option in PMwiki, then alternative
strategies for letting naive users assign themselves to get mail
posts for a page or a group... without admin involvement, is what
I'm looking for. I'm not "vested" in following WikiPedia. I'm a WHEW
I really find separate fields are useful where the areas of
discussion are broad and very disconnected -- requiring many groups
in themselves vs one giant wiki where separate massive projects are
all together with others (each of which has "sub-groups" which i
don't see a way to implement very easily) Also, since we tend to
allow anyone who has access to a given field, full read and write
privileges i don't have to set up a separate auth system inside
PMwiki itself... Protecting the web directories does it all...
