Take care that a bug in the email alert sender results in missed alerts rather than an endless cascade of duplicate alerts. check-in: 164c3d1a user: drh tags: trunk

Any project complex enough to benefit from being managed by Fossil and
which has more than one user can probably also benefit from having a
discussion forum. Even if your project has a discussion forum already,
there are many benefits to using Fossil's built-in forum feature, some
of which you cannot get by using third-party alternatives:

  *  <b>Easy to administer:</b> Third-party discussion forum and mailing
     list software tends to be difficult to install, set up, and
     administer. The Fossil forum feature aims to be as close to
     zero-configuration as is practical.

  *  <b>Malefactor resistant:</b> Because Fossil accepts forum posts
     only via the web UI, it is inherently [./antibot.wiki | protected
     against bots].

  *  <b>Distributed and Tamper-Proof:</b> Posts are stored in the Fossil
     repository using the same [./fileformat.wiki | block chain technology]
     that Fossil uses to store your check-ins, wiki documents, etc.
     Posts sync to cloned repositories in a tamper-proof fashion.
................................................................................
     something. Notifications are optional, and each user gets the
     choice of immediate or daily digest delivery.

  *  <b>Talks to Everyone:</b> Because Fossil delegates email handling
     to your existing MTA, it does not need to implement the
     [http://sqlite.1065341.n5.nabble.com/Many-ML-emails-going-to-GMail-s-SPAM-tp98685p98722.html
     | roughly two dozen]
     [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Request_for_Comments | RFCs] needed
     to properly support SMTP email in this complex world we've built.
     As well, this design choice means you do not need to do duplicate
     configuration, such as to point Fossil at your server's TLS
     certificate private key in order to support users behind mail
     servers that require STARTTLS encryption.
