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?

@marijn Both the requests for a per-organization/per-repo email override and disabling notifications for an individual gist have already been submitted to GitHub and are in Feature Request List™. I don't have the ticket numbers for them in their Tender instance however.

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. :)

GitHub released this functionality today. See the blog post about the new notification features, including "Per organization email routing".

https://github.com/blog/1204-notifications-stars

You can set your email routing per organization here:

Please stop "+1" commenting on this gist.

GitHub listened and gave us this feature. Now if we could control gist notifications similar to thread notifications... ;)

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.

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.

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. 😛
