Subject Re: Whiteboard on GitHub - update
Date Fri, 26 Apr 2013 17:51:12 GMT

Thanks for working on this.  Some questions:

1) do you have this actually setup?  If so, can you commit something to your
whiteboard so I can see what the notification email looks like?
2) When the contributor sends the pull request, how does the committer get
notified?   Can an email go to the commits list?  Or does the committer only
get notified off-list?
