Recently, we enabled email notifications from GitLab on https://renkulab.io and https://limited.renku.ch. Previously, users had to rely on the GitLab activity page to stay on top of changes in their projects. From now on, renkulab’s GitLab will also send some notifications by email - please refer to the official GitLab documentation if you need to change the frequency of those notifications. These notifications should make it easier to never miss critical contributions from your collaborators or questions raised in your project’s issue tracker.
The emails will come from
email@example.com which is a generic outbound-only email address we use for various housekeeping emails and will look like this:
