It could be useful to allow sending email notifications to more than one email address: if a comma separated list of emails could be given, then multiple users could receive the notification. Another possibility could be to use a mailing lists support (see issue 371) and provide only one email address that would be the one from a mailing lists (so for example any issue notification could be sent to a list like firstname.lastname@example.org)

Thanks for your input. I prefer the idea to send to a mailing list and use it to dispatch afterwards. I will focus on the mailing list side of the work and check and update issue 371 accordingly.

I agree with the 1st proposal. I don't see any reason to limit the number of email addresses. I attach a patch proposal. Pierre

I do not understand the technical reason behind the "wontfix" status of this ticket. Indeed, if the tool can manage one e-mail, it can manage several ones. Creating mailing list would require to use another external tool, thus creating an unnecessary complexity. I work in the Scilab Consortium - Digitéo and I am managing more than 20 different projects on Scilab's Forge : http://forge.scilab.org/ For example : http://forge.scilab.org/index.php/p/distfun/ http://forge.scilab.org/index.php/p/assert/ http://forge.scilab.org/index.php/p/docintrodiscrprobas/ http://forge.scilab.org/index.php/p/sci-ipopt/ http://forge.scilab.org/index.php/p/stixbox/ etc... For some projects I am the administrator (they may be other admins as well), for some projects I am developer. Currently, I miss most of the tickets and project changes because of the fact that only one e-mail can be configured. Therefore, it is completely impossible to keep up-to-date for these projects. Recently, I accidentaly were informed that a ticket had been opened, for which I knew the solution.

Is there something new for this ticket ?

I agree it would be nice to have this feature.

I think we should consider this patch as well - the reason why I do not commit it right away is that I think a text area with one email address per line might be a better solution. This would require some UI changes though.
Comment 7 by Sylvestre Ledru, Nov 25, 2010
Are you considering doing the UI changes ? It would have been nice from Loic to provide some feedbacks on this when Pierre Marechal proposed the patch.
Comment 8 by Thomas Keller, Nov 25, 2010
I'd like to get feedback on my proposal from Loic as well before I start on anything. I'm assigning the issue to him now, this makes it popup on his TODO list...

Ok, accepted to put a comma separated list of emails.

This patch has been applied in commit 51c42a6. Changes wrt the original implementation: - source notifications are handled as well (this was previously forgotten) - ',', not ';' is used as separator - a separate form field is used to validate and clean the input (less dependent on a specific Pluf version) - the grey box on the project configuration page received a hint about the possibility to enter multiple emails and the input fields got a little larger
