Description DIG 2005-01-05 00:13:21 UTC
It would be useful to have the RSS feed, containing fresh information about
articles from user's watch list.

The relevant URL for this kind of feed should be composed of two parts:
 (1) first part is user specific and may looks like this:
       http://XX.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:USERNAME
 (2) second part is here to protect user's privacy: it is randomly generated
string, which does not change (or can be changed at user's request).

Example:
  http://XX.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:USERNAME?rss_id=febcbda8a5c3

The whole link to RSS feed will only be available to the user _after_
authentication and may be placed under "Preferences" or inside Navigation block
(latter is better, I think).

This way the user will receive fresh information about his/her watched articles
through the RSS feed.
