Edits to FrontPage aren't being mailed out to all-edits subscribers for some reason.

It also happens on my internal wiki. For unknown reasons, not all mail-outs make it to my mailbox.

It doesn't just happen to FrontPage, BTW.

I think I'll keep this more specific issue page open.. I think the problem is this: edits mailouts are sent out fine, but the :edits suffix in the subscriber_list (which you can see in /manage_propertiesForm) is getting lost! when you do some subscription/unsubscription in the subscribeform.

I added a test, fixed the bug in unsubscribe() and clarified docsstrings. All seems to be working properly now.

An unfortunate bug in that it loses the "all edits" setting of all subscribers, as soon as one person unsubscribes. The edits subscription preference had no tests until now.

Good news: adding tests is simpler now after testgeddon, and adding tests for mail subscription is quite straightforward. If you want to help, just add a method to Mail_tests.py and then make test or make test-Mail.
