Me too :-)



Seriously, I too want to be notified whenever the rug is about to pulled 
out from underneath me, and my utmost thanks go to the Macports bods for 
doing what must be a thankless job.

Against the recommendations in that article, I discovered the easiest 
way to migrate is to reinstall MacPorts base and just do a port 
selfupdate && port upgrade outdated. Chances to run into problems are 
minimal and much lower than going the recomended way.

Which is why I suggested Sieve as the first option. Works fine for me. I
use Sieve "fileinto" to sort incoming mail into folders to avoid clutter,
and for some messages I use "addflag" to mark them as seen on arrival.
This way, I have them available for reference, but they don't grab more
attention than necessary.

And by "community spirit" you mean people agreeing with you on your
personal preferences? That's not it.

For what it’s worth, as an admin of other projects and reporter of bugs *I* do 
appreciate notifications of all those changes. When I report or CC: me to a bug 
I want to know what happens to the report and attached files.

I don’t quite see why you needed to add a snide remark about the MacPorts 
community spirit. What is your problem? Not enough people caring about this 
presumed problem or that the few people who responded don’t see it as a problem?
I don’t know where that entitlement attitude comes from and how one can get so 
worked up over this.

No, as I said I'd rather not. Filtering these notifications means filtering on 
email content, and with the number of MUA's I'm using that'd have to be done on 
the server.

Notifications stop being a boon if you're getting so many of them that are 
pointless that you start deleting them as soon as they start coming in.

I'm going to be dropping this. There's clearly even less of a community spirit 
here than I thought, so I'll just find alternative ways to make to with the 
tools 
at hand when I cannot get around using them.
