For tracking llvm related bugs and such

For the record: I'd like us to get away from maintaining our own phab fork, and I agree that means probably migrating to a different system at some point.

FWIW, I think describing these as "non mainstream" and the entire description of these communities sounds to me ... somewhere between biased and pejorative. Makes it hard for me to keep engaging in the discussion.
Maybe worth a mention -- GHC is another somewhat-similar project and moving to GitLab (e.g., https://mail.haskell.org/pipermail/ghc-devs/2018-October/016425.html). It sounds like GitLab is currently better able to spend resources to support free users with relatively non-mainstream use cases than we are.
For the record, yes, FreeBSD is quite similar and what @chandlerc wrote is very much applicable to our community as well.
I think a lot of this behavior may be fairly unique to the LLVM project, since we've never really received this general class of feedback from other installs (except, perhaps, FreeBSD, which I think is somewhat culturally similar).
For the record, while the rationale can be flippantly described as "I don't like clicking things", I'd like to give it a serious description.
I'm generally very hesitant to "nag" users, and this conflicts with T7477 (which wants email to a group of users, including an application email address, to work). Of the two, I think T7477 is significantly more valuable. And, some day, many years from now, I'd theoretically like to make metamta.one-mail-per-recipient the only supported mode, which fixes this anyway.
I don't plan to change this without a better understanding of what problem we're solving. New users can click the link in the email to review the discussion, summary, and patch.
Not clear that "Sender" is worth pursuing, even if it does give us more flexibility around configuring the "From" header in some cases.
This is years old and I have no idea how to reproduce it. (I use Mail with "Organize by Conversation" as my primary mail client, and have for about a decade.)

The scope on T13053 didn't end up making it very far in this direction so I think this missed the boat for now.
T11934 plans to add these commands everywhere. If they're available all over the place, it might be less necessary to add reminders.
I've marked D19029 as resolving this since it fixes the last one of these that I'm aware of. HTML mail has been the default for a long time now so this presumably isn't really causing problems even if there are other cases.

I'm rolling this forward into T13053.

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

Understood -- thanks for the clarification. One isn't always aware of how special-case one is. :)
Many of the patches you've personally contributed in the past have bypassed the bulk of the requirements under the "Rise to Prominence" clause of Contributing Code, since you have a history with the project, are a member of Community, and have generally contributed very focused patches with clear context:
Sorry, that seemed to be in response to "are you working on this?" A user has since provided a patch for the feature, which is the sort of thing which in the past you folks have generally been nice enough to review.
Per above, see Planning. If that isn't clear, let me know how we could improve it.
Phacility folks, do you have thoughts about the patch provided by @lyngvi above? Would be it be easier to review if submitted as a Diff?

Filed T12707 to follow up.
I don't expect watchers to be on profile, but we should provide a search for it in /projects/
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.

Example: I disabled a bogus user when the "confirm your e-mail" MTA job was on its ~200th attempt. It's now at its ~240th attempt :)

Patch attached which addresses this - filter and object selection done on a new getToOrCCAddresses call. This patch is based off stable branch commit 58375fa9e6db4a389fd6029ee1ad14ddb0dc9e90.

Note that there is a Sender-related RCE in PHPMailer until Dec 2016, see T12046 for discussion.
