I know it's possible to subscribe for Repository updates, but I'm actually interested only in commits to a specific branch.
Other than signing up for all updates and creating email filters, is it doable?
Although I am not 100% sure if it's impossible, I have not personally seen any ways to receive email notifications regarding a specific branch on a repository. This might be a good issue to send to GitHub as feedback for a future feature!

Additionally, We now offer more granular notification for PR's ie:
In any case, thanks for the branch-specific feedback! I've taken your suggestion and passed it along to the appropriate teams. Thanks again for reaching out 😀
