The last time I looked at it, you only get notification when pages on
your watchlist are edited, and there's no way to automatically add
pages to your watchlist.

I'd like a similar function, I've got a wiki where I'm pretty much,
but now quite the sole contributor except for spammers.  It's not
updated frequently but I'd really like to know if it is, so that I can
check to see if something got past the spam trap, or to marvel at the
fact that someone made a valid contribution.

When I brought this up some time ago, the only advice I got was to use
the rss feed to monitor it, but I'm really looking for a completely
passive solution which would dump the notification in my mail which is
my main locus of attention.
