(Yes, not a bit nor byte nor checksum was changed. So don't tell the user "The MediaWiki page Help:Export has been changed." There are plenty of better words to use in the dictionary.)

And the email needs to say that the page was marked for translation, else the user will hunt around looking for some added words.

Well OK but the "victim" looks up and down, scratching his head, trying to find out what is going on.
Therefore the message should say "... has been marked for translation."
Or perhaps most users don't need to be notified about that, so it should be an opt-in preference.

		'FileDuplicateSearch','Filepath','Booksources','Mostimages','Tags','Disambiguations')as $i){

and now it works. Gosh, I was just trying to reduce the clutter.
