Description

Default notification looks something like "MediaWiki message delivery left a message on your talk page in "subject line...""

We can probably make that more specific and relevant.

There's been some chatter about implementing the ability to sign as the sender. Perhaps this could be the first step? Is the sender's username available to give to Echo?

Great idea.

One of the nicer parts of MassMessage is that the Talk page message doesn't have to be signed by a bot. We should try and make Echo notifications do this as well.

Did you mean send the message as echo? Just modifying the signature to use the user's signature is not really possible.

Is the sender's username available to
give to Echo?

Yes.
