Branching Model: Can we send email to the pull request creator instead of to the pull request merger?

We have started using the Stash Branching Model to perform automatic merges. We have a limited number of developers with merge permissions.

Consider the following scenario:

David creates a pull request for feature/X into branch release/2.0. Marge merges the pull request. Stash attempts to merge release/2.0 into develop but encounters a merge conflict. In this case Stash will open a pull request for release/2.0 into develop in Marge's name, and send email to Marge.

Is it possible to have the pull request opened and email set to the original pull request creator (David) instead of the merger (Marge)?

Hi Dana,

Stash does not support that at the moment; it only considers the user that merged the pull request, assuming that the user that initiated the merge 'owns' any fallout of merging the pull request. But I can see how it would make sense to the email to both the pull request author and the person who performed the merge.

Feel free to open an 'improvement' issue on!
