#3277: Notification about calls for volunteers or speakers

 If you like speaking or volunteering at WordCamps, there is no easy way to
 keep track when the WordCamps in a 500km radius launch a call for those,
 except subscribing to all the news of all WordCamps.

 Some months ago there was an initial short discussion on a centralized
 email list where one could subscribe and then be warned, but as there was
 no clear idea about who would manage that list, or who would be allowed to
 send, the idea just faded away... but I have given it some thought so here
 I go with a proposal:

 On any 2018.xyz.wordcamp.org site:
 - The organizer has 2 fields that are empty by default.
 - The moment a call for volunteers or a call for speaker is launched, the
 permalink of the post is copied in the appropriate field.
 - In case there is something wrong, a different parmalink could be posted,
 triggering an new notification.

 On central.wordcamp.org:
 - Possibility to subscribe to (and opt-out of) a mailing list for speakers
 and/or for volunteers.
 - Nightly job, checking new or changed opportunities on the different
 WordCamp sites and notify the subscribers of WordCamps that have published
 a call.

 I'm going for the nightly job and not for an immediate notification so
 - If an organizer makes a mistake, it can still be modified in the next
 minutes/hours without generation extra notification
 - In case multiple WordCamps launch something, it could be aggregated into
 1 notification.

 The advantage of this approach is that nobody needs to handle the list.
 When WordCamp organizers perform an action, everybody that subscribed gets

 Any further ideas/proposals? Please add notes.
