Pull Request:

The above PR is a temporary fix which enables users to disable all issue related notifications, which they can't do today. Users have been complaining that unticking all email notifications in preferences still sends them emails.

The standard fix involves:

  • Adding columns to user preferences table.
  • Updating UI and translating strings.
  • Changes to logic.

Instead of adding columns, I would rather change the schema to have a json for preferences or a row per preference rather than having to change the schema every time we want to add a preference.

We may also want to enable plugins to have the concept of user settings. This work is beyond the scope of the fix, but if we are going to go there, then let's do it right than adding and then removing the extra fields.

If we end up revisiting preferences, then we should also look at the user_print_pref table.

Temp fix to inability to disable notifications

The proper fix for this is not trivial involving database schema change, localization, etc.
Until this is done, we will treat uncustomizable notifications the same way as the
default preference where the "email_on_status" preference is used.
The issue will not be marked as resolved until we add the necessary preferences.
However, we should consider a model where adding user preferences doesn't
require a schema change.
