Capture e-mail addresses, and allow users to verify them through e-mail. This code is nearly complete but totally untested.
This was designed for use with the ArticleFeedback extension. The idea is that members of the Wikimedia Community Department can collect e-mail addresses (largely of people without user accounts) in order to contact them in the future about creating an account, editing an article, etc. The extension stores the individual's e-mail address, a verification code, and a verification boolean in a database table.
Open tickets in Wikimedia's BugZilla under the "ArticleFeedback" component in the "MediaWiki extensions" product. Be sure to include "[EmailCapture]" in front of the bug summary.
