Github feed issues?

Since a few days/weeks (around the latest UI changes?) my github homepage/feed does not contain any comment or issue / PR-related entries anymore for any of the projects I watch, only commits. 

I tried unwatching then re-watching, clearing notifications etc but still cannot get it to show me all news form my watched repos.


Any others with the issue or a fix? It's basically useless at this point.

Good to know I'm not the only one experiencing this!  Seems like it only shows commits now and not comments.  It's a lot less useful than it was before :(.

I just came looking for a solution to this problem, but ... there's nothing. Somebody wrote a third-party script to subscribe to pull requests from an individual repo, but that still doesn't get issue notifications or mentions.

I see this issue begins to be very old… And very annoying too. GitHub can send notifications by email, but not by feed?

My private atom feed is starting to be pretty useless now, since I don't see any project discussion and activity except commits and tags.

If this is a performance related issues, I suggest to limit the number of requests made to the private atom feed.


But anyway, it would be good to have an official answer on this.

Nice to have some official feedback finally.


But why was it changed in the first place? It's not so much a "feature request" since it already WAS just like it should be and got broken...
