Allow subscribing people to a pull request

schema-request

#1

This is useful to enable a watchlist-like behavior. It’s already possible to do so today by creating a comment in which users are mentioned (and eventually deleting that comment to keep thing clean), but afaik there’s no REST API to do this directly.

Of course you’d need to add safeguards to avoid spam, etc. and make sure that people who manually unsubscribed from an issue can’t be programatically added back to it.

What about https://developer.github.com/v3/activity/notifications/#set-a-thread-subscription endpoint, is that not what you want?


#3

That API is there to set your own subscription status when you’re logged
in, so it would require to oauth as every user you want to subscribe to
the thread (which is not always possible).
