TWiki mailnotify fails with this message:

Can't locate object method "_alert" via package "TWiki::Contrib::MailerContrib::WebNotify" at /var/www/twiki/lib/TWiki/Contrib/MailerContrib/WebNotify.pm line 412.

This is on 5.0.0-rc3

Relevant code:

sub _subscribeTopic {
    my ( $this, $who, $unsubscribe, $webTopic, $options, $childDepth ) = @_;

    my ($web, $topic) = TWiki::Func::normalizeWebTopicName($this->{web}, $webTopic);
    $this->_alert('warning: ignoring web prefix on '.$webTopic) if ($web ne $this->{web});

Fix: Remove _alert, it is OK to silently ignore that subscribe issue.
