there is a proposal PR for notifying admins of new Forman releases:
I really like the idea, but it can be intrusive for some users.
My feeling is go ahead with it and just improve the settings to have just two, but still having a choice to be notified about RCs defaulting to just major releases only.
Other options that comes to my mind are:
- notify about nothing
- notify only about the major releases without having an opt-in RCs
- Directly from GH without a choice for url, just fetching errors
- adding the release notifications to the RSS feed and thus showing them to the people who have rss notifications enabled
Another issue is if we should show only foreman releases or releases of some plugins as well, but that feels bit far fetched.
What do you guys think?
