in the last week I've spent a bit of time investigating the possibilities of how to
watch for ticket/revision updates in Phabricator, and found out that some new features in
Phab greatly simplify this. I have updated our Phab wiki page and included most common use
In a nutshell:
* you can now start "watching" projects which automatically sends you all tasks
(tickets) updates. No more Herald rules needed. Unfortunately, this does not apply for
* you can now easily subscribe to tickets without a project defined (usually bug reports).
This way you can help us classify and triage them and make sure they go unnoticed (that
unfortunately happened in the past).
* Taskotron lovers can now easily watch for all Taskotron-related new revisions (patches)
by using the repos-taskotron meta-project . We will make sure that this meta-project is
always linked with all taskotron-related repositories, and you don't need to update
your Herald rules for every new Taskotron sub-project.
* You can now easily decide between a permanent item subscription or just one-time
notification by choosing either "Add emails to CC <name>" or "Send an
email to <name>".
I have tested it for the last week and everything seems to work properly for me. If you
have some troubles, ask.
