It would be a nice to be able to optionally show watched groups inline on the initial My Dashboard page; a per-group setting would be great. This would allow all new reviews for a given group to show up as soon as My Dashboard is clicked. For those who are responsible for a particular Group and therefore have to at least be aware of each patch as it arrives, this would save a good number of clicks per day.
This is what the group subscription is for in "My Account" I'll leave this open, because it might be nice to rethink the UI to combine watched groups with group membership.

A-ha! That is exactly what I was looking for. Hum .. yes, I had expected it to be available from either the Group listing (or, barring that, off of the Group page itself, though I don't figure that page would benefit from more clutter). Seems to me that would be the "natural" place to find. Also, yes, it is a bit interesting that to watch a group one also therefore belongs to it. Anyways, thanks for the quick response. Enjoying r-b thus far (been using it for ~3 weeks in our project).
Joining a group and watching a group are a little different, though it's non-obvious. If you join a group, all review requests to the group will appear in your Incoming Reviews list. If you just watch a group, it doesn't, but instead appears in the various groups. This is useful if you're interested in paying attention on occasion to review requests in a particular group, but you don't want them all to clutter your dashboard.
