It would help WikiProject members to have an easy way to monitor changes on all of the articles in their project, including both the main and talk namespaces.
Right now, you can use Special:RecentChangesLinked/Category:Foo to get RC for pages marked with a category, but this only shows results in the namespace where the category is linked. Since WikiProjects tag an article's talk page, the only items that show up in RCLinked are talk pages.
Investigate creating a new special page (Special:RecentChangesCategory?) that would include an option to show recent changes to associated pages (the talk pages of content pages and the content pages of talk pages). This would allow the page to effectively act as a watchlist for WikiProjects.
Questions to answer:
- How difficult would be to create such a page? Are there any blockers?
- Are there other use cases for such a feature?
