in thread RFC: Subscription to nodes

I haven't looked at the code, but this would probably be quite complex.

How do you figure that? Just add in an extra function call whenever a node is posted that checks who's monitoring the node's parents and send a message to those users. Seems straightforward to me :)

    Oh yes, look at the parent, get a list of interested people, then look at *its* parent, get a list of interested people, then *its* parent, and so on. Then de-dupe the list, then mail it out efficiently. That alone could get quite expensive.

    You also need a database schema change to somehow record a list of people who want to be mailed about posts. Plus the interface for users to add and remove themselves from those lists.

[marto]: maybe next year when the kids are a little older I'll have time to attend perl events in Europe
[Corion]: marto: Yeah - there isn't a Perl Day-Care at Perl events - we thought about it for YAPC::Europe 2012 but it's a gigantic effort to organize that
[marto]: Corion yeah, it'd be too costly for me to bring them both :P
