Notify watchers remembers your preference in Confluence - for the last page edited or on per page basis?

Since Confluence 5.8 Notify watchers remembers your preference (see https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/confluence-5-8-release-notes-744325370.html#Confluence5.8ReleaseNotes-)

What is remembered, my choice for

a. the last page I edited

or b. the last time I edited exctly this one page?

Hi Anne,

You turn the Notify watchers checkbox on and off on a page, not globally.  So it's b, the last lime you edited that exact page. 

You can test this yourself by creating and saving a new page.  Then turn Notify watchers off on an existing page.  When you edit the new page you just created, Notify watchers will still be turned on.
