Count yourself lucky - where I work we have 4 separate ticketing systems some of which vaguely interact with the others and the same ticket is usually reproduced on at least two of the systems, each of these systems holding some of the 'truth' for a ticket.
“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”
Same here. They really need to make finer grained settings for email than all/nothing. Clarification edits on a ticket assigned to me, or "how do I test this" comments from QA are useful email that I want. Organizational edits (eg setting an epic, tagging a bug as in the web site vs a mobile app, etc) are rather meh. State transitions are context sensitive - I don't need an email about transitions caused by something I did (eg creating a branch for the bug, creating a PR, merging the PR, etc); but one's for activity from other people can be useful (eg QA bumped a change from test to todo because they found a problem) - and complex enough that the level of control I'd like really would probably be a phase 2/10 feature. Others are utterly obnoxious, I don't need 20 email's for each of the 20 open items I've got being moved from Sprint N to Sprint N+1 because N was closed, at most a single email about the new sprint listing all of the affected items would be useful, and at that since it affecting everything in the sprint is a given I don't even really need the list.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
