Pipe Dream

Is it possible to have a "Recent changes" for a category, or a selection of categories? Ideally, I'd like to be able to see the changes in Category:J or Category:Programming tasks, since I last logged in. Is that even feasible?

Not with the current software set. If you can find the appropriate MediaWiki extension, I'd probably add it. (I myself have wanted a feed specific to the Talk: namespaces for a long time.) --Michael Mol 23:40, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
Actually, using the MediaWiki API, you could filter recent changes however you liked, the only real limitation being that the API doesn't let you look back in time any further than Special:RecentChanges does. —Underscore (Talk) 00:20, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
