them generate emails (probably on a per-user basis, as I'm sure there's people who appreciate emails when PRs are added)? I guess the other option is a client-side filter, but I'm not sure how easy it would be to do something like that.
Kind of telling that Nick asked for a "notify when PR created" feature, and you are asking for it to be disabled :) Yes, it would need to be a per-user setting, and currently it is not (it is a global setting in Roundup).
I'm sure upstream would accept a patch to add a per-user setting for this (and other things!). Since the nosy emails are generated by a reactor (a code snippet specific to the tracker instance) it wouldn't even *need* to go upstream, and wouldn't be all that hard to write, I think. I'm not volunteering, though, not enough time :(
Maybe with the new docker tracker-test-setup that Maciej and Ezio have refined we'll be able to get more volunteers interested in working on the tracker codebase. When they are ready it could use a bit more visibility (a posting to python-dev and one to core-mentorship, say).
