Wm-bot recent changes is not visible from IRC
Open, NormalPublic

Description

The list of pages watched for recent changes in a specific channel is apparently only visible from a web interface (http://bots.wmflabs.org/~wm-bot/db/) that is rather difficult to find. It would be quite helpful if there was an on-irc command to dump the list of currently watched pages to the channel, especially for people using the bot to monitor recent changes in a private channel. Thanks.

Dumping anything to a channel doesn't sound like a best idea to me :( there are very strict limits set by freenode which require bot to send max 1 message per second. Given that it's already in almost 400 channels, it makes it really big problem for mq to stay low.

Maybe there could be a way to send them on 1 line as long as the list is really low
