Add repository or project to email subject
Closed, DuplicatePublic


Context: we (the KDE project) are using phabricator for many many different git repositories. The emails from Differential have a subject that only mentions "[Differential] [type of change] Dnnnn: description". A group of 70 repositories is collectively maintained on a mailing-list, where all these emails arrive.

Root issue: when I see many emails looking like "[Differential] [Request, 20 lines] D1288: Fix leaks" this doesn't tell me which project each one is about, i.e. whether I should care or not :-)

Wish: after "[Differential]" -- or even instead of it, since it's just noise IMHO -- I wish the email subject would mention the repository (or "project") that this email is about.

Related: I have seen T5244 but this is a much bigger wish ("fully configurable with template tokens") and the reply in there is "file separate tasks for separate smaller issues", hence this separate task.

Event Timeline

Not directly to your point, but you can remove or shorten the [Differential] token by adjusting metamta.differential.subject-prefix, if you didn't stumble across that already.

I'm going to merge this into T10448, which exposes this information in an X-Header and optionally in mail bodies.

epriestley moved this task from v3 to Stamps/Failover on the Mail board.
