I generally consume CPython dev channels through the mailing lists on my phone and do not log in to any websites from my phone for various reasons, so I was excited to learn that I can continue using my existing workflow by consuming Discourse in “mailing list mode”.
I signed up to watch
[Core Workflow] and
[Packaging], and explicitly muted
[Ideas]. Additionally, I do not have the bandwidth to monitor the governance discussions, so I have muted the tag
[governance], however, although no one has mentioned me, I seem to have been subscribed to this thread (which is both in Ideas and tagged governance), and I have been getting e-mails from all the
governance posts. I have manually clicked the “unsubscribe from this thread” on at least this thread, but I seem to still be getting e-mails from it!
Additionally, I only really want to mute notifications from these things, but now “Ideas” doesn’t even show up in the web interface for me, and when I check the “governance” tag, the “Comparison of the 7 Governance PEPs” post that I unsubscribed from is also missing.
Did I configure my settings incorrectly? Is this a problem with mailing list mode? I’m very excited about the possibility of having a version of the mailing lists where I can easily unsubscribe from entire threads, but the current implementation seems to be a bit rough around the edges.
