Diffusion is integrated with the other tools in the Phabricator suite. For instance:
- You can add Herald rules to notify you about commits that match certain rules;
- In tasks and other places, you can automatically link to commits.
- When Differential was still used for development, committed Differential revisions to a tracked repository were automatically updated and linked to the corresponding commits.
The #Diffusion-Repository-Administrators group in Phabricator is tasked with managing our repositories.
Requesting a new repository
If you would like to have a new repository mirrored into Diffusion, please create a task in the #Diffusion-Repository-Administrators project.
Callsigns are short names that represent a repository. They are entirely optional. You can read more about them in the upstream Phabricator documentation. Callsigns must be only capital Latin alphabet letters (eg:
[A-Z]+). They are also immutable (not changeable).
Email address privacy
Obviously, if you make a commit using an email address that is associated with a Phabricator user, the user and the email address will be linked in the user interface.
