What version are you running?

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?
broken email support

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. have a user in a local site and the regular site
2. have same user in a review group on the normal site
3. create a review and add the review group to the review on the normal site
everyone in the review group will get the email except for the user that also exists in the local site.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
everyone in a review group should get the review email.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
centos 6.4 64 bit. firefox 32.02

Please provide any additional information below.
If I specifically add the user as an individual to the review then they get the email. The lack of email only occurs when they are included in a review group.

In our deployment because we do not actually have a local site in use and this appears to be one of our admins who created the localsite my solution was the following.
mysql> use reviewboard;
Database changed
mysql> delete from site_localsite_users where id='1';
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)
mysql> delete from site_localsite_admins where id='1';
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)

It appears that the documentation link for local sites is returning a 404 so I do not know how local site should normally be created or destroyed.

Thanks for the report. We'll get a fix in for the next release.

Local sites aren't really meant to be a first-class feature right now, but it is possible to manage them using the admin UI (which is probably a better choice than making your own database queries).
