Did GitHub change their activity feed? Or am I getting more confused now I contribute to so many different projects that I'm not a maintainer of? Either way, I struggle sometimes to find the pull request or issue that I had a discussion on to revisit or continue that discussion (yes, I get email notifications - and no, I don't take good enough care of them to find things that way).
GitHub has brilliant advanced search functionality, and what I wanted was:
is:pr commenter:lornajane sort:updated-desc
Which gives me a list of all the pull requests I've commented on, with the most recent first. I couldn't remember the exact repo name and I also often switch
is:issue as appropriate, but this search string has been very helpful for finding those odd things you want to follow up on.
Do you have a favourite GitHub search string combination? Would you care to share it in the comments? Thanks :)
