Feature request: Send notifications for new issues, too (not just pull requests) #5

One problem I've been dealing with manually at ThinkUp is that users file new bugs/feature requests in the issue tracker that the community could help with, but no one sees them except me because I'm the only one who gets the notification. (So I ask the filer individually to post details to the mailing list so the community can help, but that ticks everyone including me off because it's extra work. Today it got close to contentious.)

Therefore, I am here to ask: Could the pull request bot support new issues in addition to pull requests?

I'd want issue notifications to go to the general community mailing list with a custom template. (Pull requests should continue to go to the dev list with the "request for code review" message template.)

What do you think?

What you're asking goes slightly outside of the scope that this repo's title suggests but you're actually giving me an idea...

I started rewriting this project in Ruby a few days ago (slowly, nothing too hectic). I wasn't immensely pleased with my PHP implementation of it but now I'm tempted to scrap both ideas in favour of a new one.

What if I built a framework that allowed you to hook in to events on GitHub? They have post-receive hooks for pushing and there seem to be other projects have have integrated these post-receive hooks in other places to do other things (https://github.com/search?type=Repositories&language=&q=github+hook&repo=&langOverride=&x=0&y=0&start_value=1) but it's all for post push and nothing else. I can't see anything (on GitHub, at least) that supports events for new pull requests, new issues, etc. etc. etc.

If I wrote a framework that allowed you to hook into these events, you'd be able to super easily configure what you want to happen when a new pull request comes in or whatever. Does that sound like a good idea? :)

I suspected it was out of scope, but I had to try. :)

Good for you! As much as I'm worried about losing you to the Rubyists, I think it's great that you're working with a variety of languages.

Love that idea. I'm in full support. Let me know how I can help.

Thanks Sam!
