How can I specify GeneralWikiSubscriber to be turned on by default for new user?

(page prefs/subscriptions says administrator can set some default policy, but I cannot find any trac for this policy in documentation or in config).

Currently I have to modify subscription table in trac db, but this doesn't look as a nice solution to me.

Replying to anaderi:

This is a subscriber, that is useless without configuration. I guess you feel that it should implicitly set a default value like * for all users, if enabled, right?

(page prefs/subscriptions says administrator can set some default policy, but I cannot find any trac for this policy in documentation or in config).

This is currently not implemented. Note that the cited claim belongs to configuration done at the prefs/subscriptions panel only, not to the older prefs/announcer, where GeneralWikiSubscriber is still configured, you see? The purpose of both pages could be possibly made clearer by documentation. And I even think about merging both into a single page for clarity.

Currently I have to modify subscription table in trac db, but this doesn't look as a nice solution to me.

Not as user. For admins better have a default value, that is used in absence of a user configuration for that subscriber and can be copied, customized and overwritten by each user, when he/she decides to use the preference page. Side-note: The default value will not apply anymore afterwards, and resetting the value for all users might not be a bright and nice idea as well.

Maybe this could be resolved by implementing the IAnnouncementDefaultSubscriber.default_subscriptions for GeneralWikiSubscriber, but the description for this feature seems to disagree, and I'll need a closer look to get this done anyway.
