Beta team: better bug subscriptions now enabled


The yellow squad are spending the next couple of weeks adding some
additional polish to the new bug subscriptions and notifications
system. If you’re part of the Launchpad beta testers team, though,
you’ve got access to it right now.

So, if you are a Launchpad beta tester, here’s what to look out for
when dealing with bug subscriptions:

 * You can now choose which events will trigger an email and filter
them by types of status, importance, etc., when you subscribe to a
series, project or distribution.

 * As a result, you can have more than one bug subscription to the
same series, project or distribution, each subscription with its own

 * You can mute individual bugs.

 * Bug mail that results from a named subscription has a
“X-Launchpad-Subscription” header, and a line in the body of the
email, quoting the name you gave the subscription.

 * You can see, and edit, all the different ways in which you might
receive email about a particular bug by clicking “Edit bug mail” on a
bug page.

I’ll announce the feature properly, with a nice fancy screencast and
all that jazz, when we release it in full.

If you’ve got any questions, ask them here. If you come across any
bugs, please report them [1] with the “story-better-bug-notification”
and “beta-team” tags.
