I got an email from an old https://bugs.launchpad.net/ bug tracker for zest.releaser yesterday evening. Hey, I didn’t even remember we had that one anymore. Zest.releaser moved to github a couple of months ago, that’s why.
So I asked for the issue to be moved to github. Ok, that happened. But my inbox stayed suspiciously empty. No notifications for new issues. I checked https://github.com/zestsoftware/zest.releaser/issues and saw a couple of issues in there that I never saw before.
So I checked every configuration spot in github and every checkbox that ought to send me an email was properly checked. So why didn’t I get some email?
Turns out, after some searching, that Alex King found the reason: the users in the “owner” team for an organization don’t get any emails. You have to be a member of a regular team for that.
