Wikimedia Germany has been working with a team of students over the
past months. They have among other things developed a pubsubhubbub
extension. The idea is that we allow 3rd parties to easily subscribe
to changes made on Wikidata or any other wiki. Wikidata's changes get
send to a hub which then notifies all subscribers who are interested
in the change.
We'd like to get this extension deployed for Wikidata and possibly
later other Wikimedia projects. For this they need some more eyes to
review them. RobLa suggested I send an email to wikitech-l about it.
The review bugs for this are

Thanks for your help getting this ready for deployment.

Hi Lydia,

Thanks for providing the basic overview of this.  Could you (or someone on the team) provide an explanation about how you would like this to be configured on the Wikimedia cluster?  Is this something that you see anyone being able to subscribe to, or would this be something that would only be available to a limited list of third parties? 

Also, based on our last conversation, it sounds like we're up against some time constraints here with respect to the students' time; could you clarify?
