Github suggestion: Per-organization email overrides

This totally happened, y'all can stop +1ing this now. GitHub Blog post. Direct link to settings where you can set this.


#Per-organization / per-repo email overrides - A feature suggestion

Here the concepts "organization" and "user" are interchangeable, I'm talking about an entity that owns a repo, whether it is jQuery or John Resig. I'll stick to using organization as it best represents my original use-case.

##TL;DR

I want to get notifications from my work organization in my work email account, not my personal one. Github should provide an interface for this that isn't "setup forwarding in your personal email".

##The Situation

I use Github for personal projects and as part of a work organization. Currently Github sends all my notifications into a single inbox - my personal one.

##The Problem

I don't want everything to go to my personal email. I want notifications on my work projects to go to my work email and notifications on my personal projects to go to my personal email. Optionally repeat for any other hypothetical organization I might be a member of / user or repo I interact with.

##The Workaround

I can setup forwarding rules in my personal email based off the List-ID header (As told to the masses in this blog post, under "Filter Notifications by Repository or User" but this feels clunky, as though it should be managed as part of Github.

##The Solution

Create an option that allows me to override the email that my notifications should be sent to on a per organization / repo basis.

Github already knows what organization and repo a notification relates to as it sets the List-ID header, changing the from header based off these details that are already exposed should be pretty simple. I already specify the emails addresses I use at https://github.com/account/email. Perhaps an option on there for "receives notifications from: default | organization | organization/repo". Later per-email address notification settings could be added on https://github.com/account/notifications.

##Thoughts?

That said, at the rate GitHub is hiring chances are very good that someone who commented on this gist is going to be hired soon, so we just need to be patient. :)

TafThorne commented Apr 29, 2015

I confused myself for a short while, so adding a note for future clarity. Despite the words "Here the concepts "organization" and "user" are interchangeable, I'm talking about an entity that owns a repo, whether it is jQuery or John Resig." the feature that was added only permits you to route emails based on entities that you are a part of. If you are part of an organisation you can route emails, if you just watch their repositories you cannot. Obviously, I cannot be another person either.

I had wanted to split the notifications for my work related lurking and my personal lurking to go to two separate accounts. That is not how the new feature functions. My options are:

  1. Ask to join the organisation's relating to my work, so that I can send notifications for them to my word address.
  2. Setup my personal email to forward certain notification emails on to my work email.

I am not sure that keeping up to date on the activities of a repo is enough justification for me to ask to join an organisation. I am not likely to get permitted much time from my work to spend actively contributing to the projects. All I need is to follow developments, check for interoperability with our stuff and note the odd bug.

Is there a separate issue written up for that?

@innokenty. Many of the +1s above are for something that is not present. The ability to choose your email that's used as the commiter email when merging pull-requests. If my personal email is my primary email then whenever I merge a pull-request for work it will show up in the git log as the commiter for the merge-commit.

πŸ‘ for being able to set the email used for merging pull-requests. Like others have commented, my personal email is used when I merge in PRs for my organization, which is less than ideal.

+1 setting email per org, for merging pull-requests, etc, would be very useful (and isn't possible today)

Here is an issue about it, in a pseudo 'issue tracker' for Github itself, feel free to add a comment or +1 over there: isaacs/github#95

Please create a new gist for the new functionality. Having a flood of +1 both for the original feature and a lot of +1 after it was implemented is really confusing. Yes, I know you are asking for another function, but it's not strictly the same. So please stop hijacking this gist for another (related) feature request. πŸ˜›
