Given the relatively complex dbconfig in my organisation, we wouldn't
use this because it would end up generating alot of spam. We actually
wanted the opposite...the ability to add to the audit-trail without
sending email - and we ended up creaing a new 'Change-Log' field to
work in concert with the 'Audit-Trail'.

However, it would be nice to expand the list of actions associated with
'on-change' to include a 'send-email' action. This would allow for the
scenario you have outlined, in addition to allowing user's to generate
email on various specific conditions that apply to them without requiring
the action to be logged. Allowing a 'mail-format' attribute to be
associated with the 'send-email' action would also prove very useful,
thereby giving users the flexibility to create their own mail-formats
and tie them to their own email conditions.

While working on the replacement to the X-GNATS-notify functionality, it occured to me that there should be a way to CC people on ALL changes to a PR, not just on the changes that generate an Audit-Trail entry. I can see no sane way to do this currently (any dbconfig hacks to prove me wrong would be most welcome), except for configuring all fields to generate an Audit-Trail entry upon change, which hardly seems sane.

I guess what I am looking for is a way to trigger sending of mail from the global "on-change" section of dbconfig, with an appropriate mail-format.

Does this seem useful to anyone else?
