As you say, I don't know how to separate minor from more
substantial changes and right now we do not have a separate
email list just for MathAction notices (but we could). However
it is possible to choose to receive a once-a-day "digest" from
the axiom-developer email list. Click the link:

You must give you email address and the password that you
choose when you first subscribed to the axiom-developer email
list. Click 'Log in". Then you can change your settings by
"Set Digest Mode - On" and then finally "Submit my changes".

I have set the mailout_policy property to None for the page

I think that this will prevent all edits and comments to this
page from generating email notices. If this works (the ZWiki
documentation is a little unclear), then we can point first-time
users who want to experiment to this page.

Thanks for the questions.
