I like the approach of showing the full text with the diff embedded.

Two items of interest
 * JIRA didn't seem to be doing any better than this until very recently: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-25667
 * I would have expected the AnnouncerPlugin to do a better job at this since it formats messages in HTML, but it only seems to present a plain text diff with a limited number of surrounding lines (https://trac-hacks.org/ticket/10485).

Well, you could choose to show a diff with the full text shown. Not quite the same thing as the clean text of course..

Cheers,

+1 for the diff, but not sure we should completely remove the clean text
also.

fwiw +1
It's really hard to figure out what part of description and other text
fields changed .

#229: Email change updates should show diffs, not full text

  * keywords:   => email notifications


Old description:

,, ... via ''Bloodhound'' quick create ticket dialog,,
New description:

  Currently these emails show the full text before the change, and the
full
  text after the change.
  As an example,
  [https://issues.apache.org/bloodhound/ticket/115?action=diff&version=2
  this change] triggered [http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox
  /incubator-bloodhound-
commits/201210.mbox/%3C070.12e315d1fb01dea5055b33eda063802b%
40incubator.apache.org%3E
  this email]. My suggestion is that the email should contain only the
diff
  information.
