#2324 Get notifications of issues and PRs a user creates even if they unwatch a repo
Closed: Fixed 2 years ago by pingou. Opened 3 years ago by mprahl.

Based on your level of access on a repo, Pagure automatically gives you a default watch level. Sometimes this default is undesirable so users choose to "unwatch" the repo.

My expectation from this behavior is that I would no longer be notified of new issues and PRs, however, I would still be notified by those that were created by me or that I was involved in through a mention or a comment.

The "unwatch" feature is quite literal. Should it be? Should we provide additional options or change the expectation of "unwatch"?

There seems to be some overlap with https://pagure.io/pagure/issue/2230 so may be worth investigating both tickets in one go

Should we change the wording of "unwatch" to "ignore" and then "unwatch" can be used only notified whenever @mentioned or opened ticket/PR ? People will get confused though :/

Is this fixed now that we can reset the watch status?

@pingou Who should know if not you? :) Do notifications work now even if you unwatch the repo?

(And btw, what does "reset watch status" really do? It's not really clear to me).

Do notifications work now even if you unwatch the repo?

No, currently unwatch drops all notifications.

Reset means you're going back to the default, so if you don't have access all you'll get is @<user> mention, otherwise if you have access you'll ticket/PR + @<user> mention.

So it does not solve the problem. The request is to be able to unwatch a repository while being notified on name mentions. Alternatively, adding a new option "watch name mentions only".

I've just double-checked this, if you unwatch a project and you're mentioned via @<username> you'll get the notifications :)

I'm doing the change so that the person who opened the ticket/PR or is assigned to it will be notified even if they "unwatch"ed the project.
