I am getting every notification message from GitHub - NixOS/nixpkgs: Nix Packages collection & NixOS. I am on holiday and don’t have my 2FA device with me. Can someone with admin privileges please stop the spam. It is actually starting to ruin my holiday.
This is caused by being added to a team on GitHub, which makes GitHub automatically subscribe you to the relevant repositories. You should have received an e-mail with subject
[GitHub] Subscribed to NixOS/nixpkgs notifications, which contains an unsubscribe link. I would expect that to work even without being logged in into GitHub.
@idontgetoutmuch I removed you from the org, hope that it fixes your problem! PM me once you’re back and I will re-add you.
I just noticed the same thing. Something definitely went wrong somewhere. I thought I had just fat-fingered something on github, but 2 people at more or less the same time cannot be a coincidence.
I don’t think any of the org admins can touch your GH settings, so your best bet is mail filtering rule if you can’t get to the GH interface.
@zimbatm thank you for taking pity on me - I will message you once I am back
@peterhoeg I’m sorry, I changed the nixpkgs-committers permissions and it reset GH custom notifications.
I’m getting spammed as well.
I used to get notifications for my PRs and PRs for packages I maintain. But today I’ve been getting a ton of emails for all sorts of PRs and merges.
@zimbatm, is it all correct with this procedure to give user commit and write permission to the nixpkgs repository?
I’m just a maintener of a few packages, but now I can even close any pull request on the repository. Should I be able to do that?
For the notifications, this setting was magically set to “All Activity” for me. Changing it back seems to have fixed the problem
I wrote a post-mortem here: Incident: some custom notifications for nixpkgs have been lost
Please move the conversation there so idontgetoutmuch doesn’t get spammed
