Re: FW: issue tracker permissions
Hi,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
We have prototyped at Orange an automatic mirroring of Pivotal Tracker (PT)
stories into github issues. See pivotaltrackermirror at , and the
experimental mirror of the buildpack tracker at . I'd like to thanks the
buildpacks team for accepting to join this experiment and providing us with
feedback in the past few weeks.
We hope this could bring the following benefits to the CF community:
1. allow use of the watching notifications
github feature to track progress on public pivotal trackers projects: all
stories or selected stories of interest.
2. allow use of github search features
<https://help.github.com/articles/searching-github> to search Pivotal
Tracker content (e.g. accross multiple mirrored PT projects, or along with
other github repositories hosting the associated code)
3. allow use of github @mentions
to contact github accounts associated with PT public projects contributors,
in the context with a specific mirrored story
4. mirrored content becomes discoverable: search engines index it,
making it easier to find mirrored PT content such as a stack trace
This is still experimental work. We would like to hear community feedback
about this initiative (how is it useful?), as well as core contributor
teams (are there unexpected side-effects that need to be handled beyond
what we fixed so far ?) Do you have suggestions for enhancements: can
you comment/vote/improve in ?
Our plan is to progressively extend this experiment to more trackers listed
in  (in a rate of a few projects per week). Please report issues on 
if you observe negative side effects, or reply to this email if you have
concerns about this mirroring.
There still a fair amount of work ahead to convert this experiment into a
stable tool, and opportunities to provide some new cool features to the
community. Contributions are welcome :-)
ps: I also recently noticed a PT slack integration  that would also
cover use-case #1 (get notifications for all stories in a tracker). I'm not
yet sure what it takes to add it to a given channel.

Just an idea... Is there a feature in Tracker to always cc someone/some
