[edit] Watching a Page for updates

Note that when you edit a page on the wiki, there is a checkbox you can click to be notified of updates to the page. It is a good way to avoid having to cc a mailing list whenever you update the wiki...

To make it works you need enabled e-mail notification in your Wiki account. To do it click the "My Preferences" link at the top of the wiki web page and select appropriate checkboxes.

[edit] Editing a whole page

Note that if you want to edit the WHOLE wiki page instead of just the section, click the Edit tab just above the article.
