What version are you running? 2.0 RC2 What's the URL of the page this enhancement relates to, if any? /r/* Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it. I'm tired of getting emails when I submit a comment or a request. I did the action, ReviewBoard shouldn't email me, it should only email everyone else. What operating system are you using? What browser? All Please provide any additional information below. I implemented this for my system. It requires the following changes: In admin/forms.py, add this to the EMailSettingsForm: mail_do_not_send_to_self = forms.BooleanField( label=_("Exclude the person doing the action when review emails are sent"), required=False) In notifications/email.py, add this to send_review_mail if siteconfig.get("mail_do_not_send_to_self"): if (from_email in recipients): recipients.remove(from_email) if (from_email in to_field): to_field.remove(from_email) before these lines: # Set the cc field only when the to field (i.e People) are mentioned, # so that to field consists of Reviewers and cc consists of all the # other members of the group if to_field: cc_field = recipients.symmetric_difference(to_field)
If you want to contribute a patch, please post it on https://reviews.reviewboard.org Ideally this would be a user profile preference, rather than a global admin toggle.
I agree that this should be a user preference, but at every company where I've used RB, most people set up email filters to auto-delete these emails — so it would be great if this preference was disabled by default (i.e. do not enable "Remind me via email what I just did a second ago" by default).
Added a preference for this in release-2.0.x (baa89ce). Thanks!
