The GitHub.com main screen (home / dashboard) only shows a subset of the events,
which is great, because they are the ones I want to see:
But the /users/:user/received_events endpoint returns way too much unnecessary events and doesn’t return some other important ones.
It returns new activity on all repositories I’m “watching”
It doesn’t return “Someone followed you” activity
Because of the huge number events that is returned, at least two things happen:
Events that I really want to see basically disappear in the middle of everything
Since the events api has a limit 300 events in total, lot’s of events will get lost
Can we get a way to get the exact same info via API? I mean, a way to not return all these repo activity.
(Even better if this was on the GraphQL API, but there’s probably another post for that already).
