Add an email notification system to users in Plastic Cloud
It would be great if whenever actions are done in Plastic Cloud that all pertaining partys are automatically emailed (with a configuration for this).
Example, I create a code review for user A,B,C. Lookup user A,B,C's email and shoot them a notice of the code review. This is a standard feature for other cloud base repos that is super useful. Currently i have to either rely on my teammates telling me they submitted code reviews or have each of them integrate an app into their setup. It would be nice to have a one stop shop for this. : )

Very curious if this is on the horizon. This is something I've taken for granted the last decade or so with repositoryhosting.com, for example.
On any distributed team that is large at all (not to mention multi-OS), having individual users running complex programs on triggers is not feasible. Also, just trying to update the email lists for them all would be infeasible -- some email addresses are not intended to be shared with every contractor with commit rights, but their commits should still go into the pool, etc.
I don't think this needs to be super overengineered. Essentially, a few basics would accomplish most things:
- Does a plastic scm cloud user have access to a project? Was there a checkin to the project? Email them unless they opt out.
You can get fancier with things like email addresses that are not part of the list of cloud users, or you could get into things like branches only going to be people related to the branch, but this is not too terribly critical for small and midsize teams.
Yes, this is a good one that is related to having triggers on Cloud and also a full pack of improvements we need for the code review.
Took good note of it for the review/refactor/rework of our code review system.
