It's worked for me pretty much since the wiki started, and looking at 
the maillogs I see plenty of emails being sent out to your email address 
as well. Are you not getting those emails ? Perhaps a mail system issue 
at your end, since they are definitely being delivered to your mail server.

I think the point is that if someone wants to 'take charge' or a page, 
they should subscribe to the changelog and when other people make edits 
keep an eye on those edits.

BTW, I dont really consider your 4 lines ( not half ) of the Java page 
to be any real contribution to the wiki. The Wiki isnt really a link 
pool or a content directory. It should be the main content source.
