This is slightly off topic… I couldn’t find a definitive answer about Github and the way it deals with notifications.
If someone is more familiarized than I am regarding this, and can clarify it for me, I’ll appreciate it.
It’s been my understanding all along, that as long as a user comments on an issue and whether the user is subscribed to it or not to that issue- the default values for the Github interface is that the user in return gets a notification as soon as another user comments/participates on the same issue.
This is the way I’ve normally followed an issue. But note that I’ve never subscribed to in the past.
I just found it odd that I never got a notification from Github when I commented on issue
Also, both email and web are checked marked under settings
Notifications for the conversations you are participating in, or if someone cites you with an @mention.
But, perhaps I need to subscribe to it directly instead… because unfortunately it hasn’t worked lately.
