Both Manual:Hooks/foo and all the $wgFoo pages
can definitely benefit
from some automation.
I know the reason I usually don't update the Manual pages is because by the
time the change gets reviewed and merged, I don't remember anymore that the
change actually requires Manual page updates. I have the same problem with
remembering to close bugs; the automated comments posted to the bug on
merge now often remind me, at least for bugs I'm on the CC list for.
A bit late, but I wrote a script to do this today, since I didn't
want to manually
create a page for the hook I added to core today.
It's not totally perfect,  doesn't look that nice, and it's not
smart enough to
figure out things like the type of an object based on reading the text.
If someone were to write a bot that would comment on
the changeset after it
was merged linking to hook and $wgFoo manual pages that probably need
updating, that would serve as a useful reminder.
If people like this script, we could have a bot automatically create a stub page
on mw.o when the change is merged, and then a human can fix it up.
