In Confluence 4.0 (or 4.1), how can you disable notification of an updated attachment for users? - we have a watch space / page set on a page which also has attachments within it...
The way we operate is this:
We add / update a series of attachments (i.e. PDF's, photos etc...) - currently notification is sent to the watcher of each and every attachment update... (which we don't want as it looses it's importance due to the number of notifications)...
Ideally after we are happy with the attachments, we then update the page and once happy, a auto notification would be sent as with the ammendments as one completed notification...
Is there a plug-in that I can disable for this function? - or other way?
Am I missing something here?
We are aware that the current behaviour is not ideal, and notifications in general is an area we hope to improve on in the near future.

@Patrick Moynihan Yes and no as far as it being resolved. The resolution to CONF-7612 suppressed notifications in attachments were added in the edit screen. A newer issue - https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-33214 - addresses the subject of suppressing notifications when adding attachments to the view screen or directly to the Attachments screen. The typical user at our organization is not aware that how they add an attachment can determine if a notification storm is imminent, but it appears from the comments on this latest issue that there is some resolve from Atlassian to address it.
