Re: [eclipse-dev] Advice on working with GitHub

Yea, I miss build notifications a lot, because while working on multiple PR's it is hard to track which one is in which state (still running/failed/passed).

Mickael, do you mean, one could improve ?

Could you please push a PR with the proposed change?

Current state *where* is "almost identical to how things were earlier".

This is not true, current state is that on all platform repos except resources I have to keep dozens of tabs open in browser and regularly poll what is going on with which PR.
I get a massive spam on issues/PR's I'm not interested in, but don't get a simple notification on PR's I'm working on. Insane.
Switching to a different workstation / notebook (e.g. from Linux to Windows) and I miss everything - I have to remember what PR was requiring my attention. That is a constant pain, especially because github fails to provide even basic functionality available in gerrit - list of PR's I'm working on or where my review is requested or where I've commented something.

So having at least proper mail notifications on PR build status would be really useful.

Kind regards,
