[VOTE] Enable notifications about XWiki pages by default

Guillaume Delhumeau
Hi devs.

This vote is about enabling notifications about "page" events (create,
update, delete, comment) by default, for both notification menu and emails.
I think it is important since watchlist is replaced by notifications in the
next version. If the user does not enable it, then even if there is a
bridge between the watchlist preferences and the notifications, she won't
receive emails anymore.

Moreover, it makes this feature more discoverable (for sure!).

Here is my +1.

Thanks,

PS: my plan was initially to have it for 10.1RC1 and 9.11.3. Regarding the
time-frame, I'm not sure we can do it for 10.1RC1. So either we do it for
10.1 final or 10.2RC1.

+1 too ; regarding notification emails, my best guess would be to enable
the «Daily Email» option.

Also, it would be nice to add a footer in the notifications emails with
a link to the notification center, in order to help the user manage its
subscription options if he wishes to disable or filter its notifications.

Also, having a bootstrap tour for the notification center might be nice
too in order to guide the user in the filtering options. Having a pinned
thread on forum.xwiki.org about the notifications would also be
interesting in order to see if the users like this new feature or not.

It's already the case, but in the header :)
