Subject [DISCUSS] Adjust JIRA to send out less mails (e.g. only about issue creation, status changes etc.)
Date Thu, 06 Dec 2012 09:24:58 GMT

I propose to change the ASF JIRA config for the CLOUDSTACK project
in a way that it doesn't send out mails to -dev on *every* change,
especially for description edits, comment edits, comment additions
etc. and only do it for important events, like issue creation,
status updates, assignee changes etc.

It's pretty easy to accidentally click on the description area
(which makes an editable text area appear and pre-selects all text)
and to delete or replace all text with a single keystroke. If you
click outside the text area then, the changes get saved and
instantly mailed to -dev.

I agree that transparency and awareness about bug reports is very
important, but probably not everybody on -dev is interested in
any change to any issue, so just sending out the important
notifications to -dev and allowing people to add themselves as
watchers to a JIRA issue if they are interested in particular ones
could reduce the number of uninteresting mails for most people.
