[drupal-devel] Is anybody doing any major work on subscriptions module?

Hi all,

I began rewriting the subscriptions module a bit today and wanted to 
check here if anyone else was also working on it? It would be a shame to 
  double our efforts.

Here is what I've done so far:

You can now subscribe to nodes, users and categories (was nodes, 
blogs(?) and categories).

The /subscriptions screen where all of the nodes and all of the terms 
for the entire site were listed in one gigantic table is gone. In its 
place is a screen with three tabs; categories, users, content. The 
categories tab lets you subscribe using normal select boxes. Content and 
users tabs only show you your subscriptions and offer you the chance to 
unsubscribe. I don't think it is a good idea to use these screens as a 
means for subscribing to nodes and users.

Each node has the links (un)subscribe content, (un)subscribe user.

Users can decide whether they want immediate notification or digest 
notification at an admin specified interval.

What I hope to finish tomorrow is the digest mailing, the admin screen, 
and placing a lind (un)subscribe user on each user's page.

I will introduce hook_cron to handle digest mailing and probably a 
second table to store the digest mails between crons.

The original subscriptions table is unaltered and a smooth upgrade will 
be possible.
