Provide access to Notifications for anonymous users
Open, LowestPublic

Description

Enabling Echo for anonymous users is something that eventually should get done.

At the very least a schema change will be needed on the echo_notification table.

There are quite a few calls to if ( $user->isAnon() ) { abort; } which need to be updated.

It would be interesting to investigate expiring notifications for dynamic IP addresses.

The WMF core features team tracks this bug on Mingle card https://mingle.corp.wikimedia.org/projects/flow/cards/487, but people from the community are welcome to contribute here and in Gerrit.

Apparently WikiHow is working on this (or already has it done?)...

Compare http://www.wikihow.com/Special:Notifications versus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Notifications (visit both as logged out users).

I uploaded Icfafb4e059baadff8bcda93594835a4ec6b47264 which is a diff of the WikiHow code from current master of Echo. I'll work on cutting down the irrelevant parts.
