Redmine update notification
Message from Akira OKUMURA initially sent to CTA support:
I too frequently receive e-mail notifications from the CTA Redmine because I use the setting "Only for things I watch or I'm involved in" at https://forge.in2p3.fr/my/account, and because Redmin users are registered as "Advanced Reporter" to all subprojects by default.
But if possible, I would like to receive notifications for only the subprojects in which I am really involved (in my case, LST/SCT/SST). An alternative solution is to stop adding the all users to "Advanced Reporter" lists automatically.
If users can choose "Only for things I watch" from the account settings page, it is the best for me. But Redmine does not have such an option.
This is not a request, but just feedback. No urgent.

The problem may be on our side, as we suggest to inherit all users from the top-level project "CTA". Maybe "Advanced Reporter" status is too much for everything. But do notifications depend on the "user level" in a project?
I still beleive inheritance is a good idea, because CTA admins (cta-support), who also function as first-level support for CTA managers and users, need to have access to most of the projects. Most of the project managers are not knowledgeable enough yet to configure and run a redmine project completely on their own. And we had situations in the past, where CTA support could not give support, due to missing permissions, lost managers could not configure the permissions, and we needed to contact CC staff to adjust things.
One solution could be to increase the cta-support permissions in redmine.
Sorry, Akira for abusing your ticket for this discussion. But a discussion is obviously needed, before we adjust the permissions. If I remove "cta-members" from the "Advanced Reporters" group in the top-level CTA project on redmine today, most of CTA users will not see any project any more and probably be lost.
In order to make things better, we were also waiting for the official CTA groups to be available in redmine, which is the case since a couple of weeks. Maybe we just need time to draw the consequences and use the newly available possibilities now. For example, alike ShPt, we could set all cta-wp-XYZ groups to be "Advanced Reporters" for a given redmine project XYZ.
To be followed up. Have a nice week-end everybody!
