I find myself trapped in a loop - once I do not check out github for a single day, I get so many notification stacked up that I start coming back late for my reviews or other threads. I feel terrible not getting enough feedback and I do apologize all the time, but I think I have a problem.
What is not helping is that github puts the most recent discussion to the front by default, I am not sure if there is a setting I can permanently flip or something. So this makes some threads buried down on the bottom of the stack.
And I am not even mentioning my own PRs, some of them are lying there for years as I am not finding time to come back. That problem I identified some time ago and I started opening less of my own PRs and focusing more on finishing existing ones. But it is tough, if I see a small bug you can immediately fix I just go for it. But things can turn into bigger patches quite quickly.
I would like to hear feedback from others? How many repositories are you subscribed to? You can get the number from this page:
I do have 288, granted many of these are some of my dead projects where I do not get any notifications at all. It is hard to find now many active repositories I am subscribed too.
How do you handle the load?
Do you reserve a time in a day when you just do github reviews?
Do you put some hard limit on how many our own PRs you should open?
Or is this normal and my feel of guilt is not real? (Please confirm this )
