Support for Ubuntu 15.10 ended on 2016-07-28.
Did this problem also happen with any later, still supported Ubuntu version (like 16.04) or can this task be closed as obsolete?

I think that these use to exist and were moved to a help document somewhere.

Another anecdote explaining that the current situation is confusing:
As a user who has not been active in Phabricator for a while and as my interests in projects might have shifted, I am trying to find out why I receive email notifications about certain tasks and how to disable these specific notifications to reduce the amount of uninteresting mail. But:
- My "Profile" user page does not list any "Projects".
- The email headers do not tell me either why I received an email.
After some thinking I realized that the reason was that I was a watcher (but not a member) of an associated project tag of a task.
I'd expect my "Profile" user page to not only list "Projects" (actually means: Member) but also projects that I only watch. Currently I need to go to one of the tasks that I received an email about, click all associated projects, and go to the "Members and Watchers" page of each project to find out that I once added myself as a "watcher" and remove myself.
However, that might still not explain why I received a specific email: If I have "Settings > Email > Email Preferences > Maniphest Tasks > One of a task's subtasks changes status" enabled, I also need to check all subtasks' projects whether I watch one of them.

@chad: Errrm, I assume that translates to "wontfix"? Because I don't see how a specific well-defined issue in an existing part of Phabricator is a duplicate of "Build some new tool".

Awesome (thanks for the super fast answer)!
Seeing the long list of merged commits here (thanks Evan and Nikerabbit for elaborating and explaining needs!), are there any further code changes in Phab needed before someone could set up a "Phabricator" project at http://translatewiki.net and let volunteers start contribute translations?

A while ago on some Phab instance I experienced people uploading copyrighted material as either files or Pholio mockups, then creating custom panels embedding those files plus creating a dashboard. Very creative and convenient. :) My guts also tell me that Conpherence rooms only accessible to specific users were involved to communicate/coordinate, but as admins are not all-powerful no-one could prove, I'm afraid.
"Recent Activity" on /p/username/ seems to not display a user's panel + dashboard creations/edits, even if I had rights to access those items. This might be something to reconsider?

@joshuaspence: Did 'per column scrolling' fix this issue? Asking as I have not experienced this problem in Firefox lately...

In https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T76732#2803813 ksmith brings up that
In the search bar in the toolbar at the top of the screen, searching for "Maps" brings up Maps as the third option. Searching for "Discovery" brings up Discovery as the second option.
When editing a task and entering tags, autocomplete does bring up Maps and Discovery as the first items.
but that could be a separate (unprioritized) task I guess.
Ah, thanks! I've asked downstream if anyone still runs into any issues, but so far I also believe this is now resolved.
phabricator.wikimedia.org is running a version including these changes plus D16886 on top. So far it looks like a great improvement!
+1 to what 20after4 wrote. The approach is definitely helpful, and to make this look less cluttered and inconsistent ("are projects with longer descriptions which take up more vertical space somehow more important?"), cutting off project descriptions seems like a good compromise.

Could someone with superpowers please edit the task summary to describe the actual task content? Like
Bring back links to task lists on project pages; list name of assignee in workboard cards
? (Or who do I have to bribe to get such rights?) Thanks in advance.

Indeed, that one-liner works (nice API).
Thanks for the extremely fast feedback, as usual!

@rrfeng: You already brought this up in T11680 - please see and follow the reply you received there. No need to add comments in numerous places to decentralize any conversations about the (currently unclear) underlying issue you're perceiving. Please stick to T11680 - thanks!

As I was asked to provide some input here:
That is what I am currently doing via Herald in our Maniphest installation. :)
- Why aren't they using Feed?
As a bugmaster, my workflow is primarily email-based (describing a fact here that likely could be challenged). I receive notifications on Maniphest task changes which interest me and filter / process them. I abuse the "Unread" status of certain emails to mark stuff I'd like to follow up on later. I have not played with Feed (or an application to consume feeds) to be able to judge whether that would also suit my needs on processing large amounts of information and acting on some of that.
- Why do they want all of this information in the first place?
As a bugmaster, I'd like to get informed of most / nearly all changes on tasks, to allow me clarifying task descriptions (steps to reproduce etc), escalate issues that seem important, manage expectations, etc., to support our many stakeholders.

I don't see how Herald rules are related to the provided "example use case" (maybe because it's unclear to me what "MUST acknowledge" actually means). Maniphest's advanced search already allows to combine "Created Before" and "Updated After" to address that "common need" - no Herald needed.

I think nowadays the biggest issue (as it is the most work to manually correct afterwards) is two folks editing a task description at the same time and silently overwriting.
May 23 2016
Evan, thanks (as usual) for elaborating which options are available! This is very helpful.
May 22 2016
Bugzilla's whining feature is about sending task query results via email, while Herald can only react to single tasks being created or updated.
So I am afraid this is not a complete duplicate of T6491.

@RITESH: Please see https://secure.phabricator.com . It says: This is not a demo or test install. Please don't make a mess. You can launch a demo install on Phacility if you want to poke around and try things out. Please close this task as invalid if it's just for your personal testing.

Herald! Thank you Evan.
Yes I had forgotten about that. (Wondering how I could have found out though.)
I've disabled the personal rule.
I'm closing this task as invalid and will adjust the task summary to describe what was the PEBKAC here.

AFAICS this is not Spaces specific but also applies to e.g. setting an initial custom task policy when creating a task: Foobar changed the visibility from "Public (No Login Required)" to "Custom Policy".
So far I'm aware of two WM Phab users who contacted me, concerned that the tasks they created were public for a short moment and might have created public notifications.
