Subject Sending GitHub Pull Request Comment Email Notifications to dev@ lists
Date Mon, 18 Mar 2013 21:56:52 GMT
Dear Infra,

the CouchDB dev@ list ponders whether to enable notification emails for GitHub Pull Request
comments. For now, only the opening and closing of a Pull Request create notification emails
and we do from time to time miss an update or two and we thought it’d be very convenient
to get the comments that happen inside a Pull Request alongside with the opening and closing

A few friendly people on IRC helped out determining the current setup, so we could figure
out what to do to get that set up technically. It appears that on the GitHub side
is used to ping asfgit-admin/cgi-bin/github.cgi which then in turn sends the email to

I am not privy to the contents of asfgit-admin, but Paul Davis tells me that the script ignores
everything but Pull Request open and close notification emails, which sounds about right.
I’d like to volunteer to help expand the script to also send individual comments if a project
opts into that.

The other side of this coin is ensuring that the GitHub Repo Hook sends the required notifications
in the first place. I can try to figure out the required settings for a repo I have access
to and then ask infra to make the respective changes to the gh://apache/couchdb config.

Does the above sound about right for getting what we might want? Is it feasible?
