Description

[I don't actually know if this is maniphest or harbormaster or what]

I got an email recently due to changes in a task I am following (T5781):

epriestley added a revision: D10346: Fix `arc browse path:line`.

And later another email:

epriestley added a commit: rARCe336b04aa10b: Fix `arc browse path:line`.

Neither of these were links, but both of them could have been! Then I could have clicked from the email to see the revision and/or the commit. As it is, it's now a two-step process to click on the T5781 link, and then click on the D10346 link (or rARCe33... link) from the task webpage.

We send plain text email until T992, which was built recently and needs a bunch more work. We can't link arbitrary text in plain text email.

✘ Merged into T992.

Ah, I understand; the existing links are the email client auto-linkifying for me.

I guess we could change the email content to say something like:

epriestley added a revision: D10346: Fix `arc browse path:line` (http://..../D10346)

but that's pretty ugly if a cleaner solution is in the works. There's definitely no time pressure on this. :-)
