Thanks for sharing this, it's really exciting to see this kind of
thing finally being put in place. I've taken a brief look and I see
the bits you describe here, but I'm wondering if there's a place I can
go to create global settings without having to find individual bugs.
For example, I get a bunch of LAZR-related bug mail which I would
prefer not to receive. Do I have to find a LAZR-related bug and click
'Edit bug mail' or is there somewhere I can go that will show me all
my sources of mail and let me edit them in one place (a bit like how
mailing lists are managed, for example)...?
