Watching a MediaWiki using RSS

Watching a wiki for interesting changes over a long period of time can be rather tiresome, especially when the wiki is rather large.

Fortunately a growing number of wikis are using the MediaWiki-software (the code that runs the wikipedia) nowadays. A little know fact is that MediaWiki supports RSS-feeds for the "new pages" and "recent changes" pages out of the box. Most Wikis don’t publicly link to them but they exist anyway.

To access the "recent changes"-feed just add either

/index.php/Spezial:Recentchanges?feed=rss [or] /index.php?title=Special:Recentchanges&feed=rss
to the wiki’s URL (most instances support both paths; some recognize only one of the two variants). For the "new pages" use
/index.php/Spezial:Newpages?feed=rss [or] /index.php?title=Special:Newpages&feed=rss

This method works at least for all wikis which I am reading. Here is for example the recent changes-feed of the iPod-Linux wiki.
