Another possibility is to use the web-service hook mechanism to send a HTTP request somewhere any time a pull request is created or commented on, and we could generate emails from that. The downsides are obvious: we would have to 1) host it, and 2) write it. Though maybe #2 isn't entirely true, since I have a hard time believing that we're the first ones to do something like
this. Does anyone know of a github thing, web service or otherwise, to
generate pull request emails?
And a 3rd, similar, possibility is to run something from cron that
queries the various things we're interested in using the github API and
does the posting to the list itself.

I'm starting to think that maybe integrating with the list is more
trouble than it's worth. We're already going to be getting the pull
request emails sent to us since we're owners/members of the team. Anyone
else interested can watch the repos using github to get the same
messages.


Well, one fun thing that clumens found with pykickstart patches is that if you have a pull request with a bunch of line comments on it, and then the contributor does a push --force to update the patch, all those line comments are lost. So it would be nice to have a more permanent record of these things.


Fedora has a thing to sign up repos to push stuff to fedmsg, so that might be a possibility, too.
