[possibly related to #795]

To ensure that no critical component of AMY gets edited without it being noticed, having a notification system with email alerts sent to admins when something in the Django Admin panel is edited would be useful. This is probably going to be critical for the email templates once they are in place, but even for tags or other elements that can be edited, alerting others that it's taken place would make things safer.

Just leaving some notes here:

  1. User actions in Django Admin are getting stored in LogEntry model provided by Django and are visible upon logging into Django Admin

  2. We could perhaps reuse LogEntry to send notification when action occurs, but a more general way would be to react on signals sent out when crucial objects are being edited (e.g. Tags, Roles, Badges, EmailTemplates). Signals can be generated not only from the Django Admin actions, but also during normal using of AMY. Unfortunately they probably wouldn't prevent from the number of cases we had when a bug in Merging Events caused Tags to disappear.
