Can projects and GitHub Actions be used by your non-developer teams? They absolutely can. Check out how our Security Team uses GitHub to run the department effortlessly.
Since the new pull requests shipped just over a year ago, we have been sending out pretty sparse emails when someone created a new pull request on one of your projects. You would get an email like this:
hey @jayne look at this real quick -- Reply to this email directly or view it on GitHub: https://github.com/jayne/ariel/pull/2
However, this really isn’t very much information, especially if the sender isn’t very verbose. So, we’ve expanded this with more of the pull request information – a list of the summary lines of the commits included, the files that were changed and links to the unified diff and patch versions. Your emails should now look something more like this:
hey @jayne look at this real quick You can merge this Pull Request by running: git pull https://github.com/malcom/ariel never-call-the-feds Or you can view, comment on it, or merge it online at: https://github.com/jayne/ariel/pull/2 -- Commit Summary -- * which is what happens when you call the feds * hit the head with a wrench * are they dead or just drugged -- File Changes -- M neuro-imager.3d (15) M st-lucys.txt (10) A two-by-two.txt (2) A hands-of-blue.txt (2) D jayne.traitor (99) -- Patch Links -- https://github.com/jayne/ariel/pull/2.patch https://github.com/jayne/ariel/pull/2.diff -- Reply to this email directly or view it on GitHub: https://github.com/jayne/ariel/pull/2
We’re continuing to improve the email experience on GitHub, so look for even more awesomeness going forward.
