I have notifications enabled for “releases only” on Xournalpp. They retag their nightly pre-release here: https://github.com/xournalpp/xournalpp/releases/tag/nightly
I get a notification every day for this pre-release. If I wanted that, I would enable full notifications. But seeing as I am not a developer for xournalpp, these notifications are overkill.
I expect to only receive notifications on actual releases (not pre-releases).
My suggestion would be that pre-releases do not trigger on the “releases only” notification setting, as this would work well for me. However, I don’t have insight into how this may affect other projects that do pre-releases differently. Regardless, something should be fixed here to provide the proper notification granularity or I’ll be forced to unwatch the project (not ideal!).
I sent a message via email to firstname.lastname@example.org but apparently they don’t take support messages from there anymore. I’m posting it here since there is no other way to report an issue to Github.
