Group members not getting emails when @mentioned in commits

Hi everyone,

I’m in the process of setting up GitLab for the developers at work. We’re running the omnibus edition of GitLab 7.8.1. I believe I’ve got it correctly configured to send emails to users. For instance, emails to new users are sent, and emails are sent to assignees when merge requests are created. But when a user is mentioned in a commit message using @username, that user does not get notified by email.

Is there a way to debug this? I should note that all of the users belong to the group that the project is in, but they are not explicitly members of the project.

Any help/suggestions you can offer would be great!



Hi @jmdaly! I asked around and as far as I know, this is not supported, at least not yet. You can mention someone in comments and MRs but not commit messages.
