Open, MediumPublicFeature

Description

Another user suggested on Portuguese Wikipedia that when a page is deleted, its author should be notified:
https://pt.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=36928268&oldid=36926057

Using the terminology from
https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki-extensions-Echo/blob/08fc83b6de1feb58231834864cb9caa2004e0b04/Echo.php#L423
what we need is a new event for page deletion.

@Mattflaschen I didn't get the point. Should I wait before I work on this.

Yes, we need to discuss whether to do it (probably) and what category to put it in.

Oh okay. Thanks for clarifying! :)

This looks like a good idea. We have a lot of functionality rolling out just now. The consensus is we should be able to get to this in the next month or two. Thanks for suggesting He7d3r!

Does Echo produce its own events for creating or editing a page or some other extension notifies echo on occurring of such events? for ex: Extension: Flow creates an event and notifies the users with help of echo during discussions, as far as the link provided above the file Echo.php has the events so that user gets notified on performing different on actions on the page but presently there is no such definitions in Echo.php?

Patches are welcome, however the Growth Team isn't planning to work on this at this time.
