It would be nice if there were a mechanism that notified the admin of new settings when they appear. I would like to have known sooner about
tl3 time period. I usually at least scan the commits in github, but lots of admins surely don’t.
When you do an upgrade in Moodle, it makes you take a look at new settings so that you can see that they are how you like them.
Such a mechanism could be handy for users too when their settings change. For example, if there were such a mechanism in place when the like settings changed recently people could be directed to check them out when they next visited.
