So here's the deal, Stars are great and all but the notifications rebuild has broken how I use Github on a daily basis. The following situation is now impossible:
- I get the News Feed events NOT emails of repositories I'm watching
- I get the News Feed events AND emails of my repositories
If I turn on "Email" for watching, then I get emails whenever a ticket is opened, or a comment is made, on say, Rubinius. I don't need or want that. But if I turn off "Email" and just have "Web" for watching, I no longer get emails when something happens to my repositories (like rice).
This is now the exact opposite of how I have been using Github, namely I want to keep up to date with the repositories I'm interested in following, and be notified of the things that are important to me. This is unfortunately now impossible.
Please fix this. I can't be the only one feeling this pain. We need to be able to send a given repository's event feed to our News Feed without getting emails.
