i'm so conservative, i like to have it all in my inbox :) watching an irc to
track just the hrecipe-related pages is not an option. watching the feed is
manageable but still it contains all the changes to every page on the wiki.
my personal tracking page forces me to visit it at least every 7 days -
which is a lot if the pages i watch don't change for months. when i became
editor of hrecipe i didn't want to make microformats the center of my life.
i would love if i could get just the hRecipe-related changes in my mailbox.
just that. of course this is just a wish and i'm well aware that everybody
here is volunteering - but it's a reasonable wish.

what i said about following (past) discussions on a mailinglist or a wiki
still holds: diff-ing through the history of a wiki page is a pain in the
ass... even compared to surfing a mailinglist archive on the web
