Starting the brainstorm with the low hanging fruits:

  1. As an editor I want to get notified when my favorite articles are edited to ensure quality and to stay on top of edits
  2. As a reader I want to follow an article collection/theme and get notified when new articles get added
  3. As a reader I want to get a summary from "today's featured article" or "In the news" via push notifications

@Digitarald thanks for the ideas! 1 is tricky as most editors have long lists of 'favourite articles' but definitely something to explore. 2. is interesting - we have a Gather feature and could plausibly build this in there (see T94252 - I've updated with your idea) 3. I've got a working prototype and will share more soon! :)
