Mysterious blanket e-mail notifications after upgrading to redmine 1.3

Added by Ben Cochran almost 11 years ago

I've recently upgraded a Redmine instance of mine from 1.0-stable to 1.3-stable, and I am observing some peculiar behavior.

Sporadically I get an e-mail from a project I'm listed as a 'member' of but I'm not involved with (not a watcher, author, etc.) and I'm not the only one to get these. It seems like they are generated via repository commits (I have a cronjob which runs fetch_changesets)... is this a new feature or something? It doesn't seem to be on every commit though, which makes me think that might be an actual issue.

Any ideas? Anything I can do to debug this?

Thanks,
-Ben

AFAIK, there's no email notification when a commit is fetched. Maybe these commits update some issues and you get notified about that.

Yeah, you are right... these are all cases where the commit was tagged with an #issue_id. However, in that case only those who are involved with that ticket (or watchers) should have been sent a notification via e-mail right? Everyone tagged as a member of the project is receiving an e-mail.

Anything? My users are starting to get curious...

I believe to have root caused my issue... I had moved the instance to another user in the process of upgrading but had not moved the crontab that fetched the changesets. So I was calling the 1.0-stable fetch_changesets instead. I'll keep an eye out for stray e-mails, but it appears solved for now.
