           Summary: "MediaWiki message delivery left you a message on
                    Wikipedia" and similar e-mail subject lines need
                    further thought
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.23-git
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Email
    Classification: Unclassified

I received an e-mail in my inbox with the subject line "MediaWiki message
delivery left you a message on Wikipedia".

I know what this means (sort of), but this is pretty cryptic and unfriendly, I
think. I suppose it could be worse (e.g., "MediaWiki message delivery left you
a message on Wikimedia"), but still... perhaps we need to rethink how we
structure subject lines like this. I imagine bots and other automated processes
have a similar issue.

Copying a few people who might be interested in this ticket, not necessarily
anyone related to e-mail subject lines in particular. I'm assuming HTML e-mails
like these are from MediaWiki core, but I suppose it's possible they're not...
