Things are pretty hectic here on the developer advocacy team. We spent last week at Devoxx Belgium in Antwerp, and this week we'll be jetting around Europe and North America as part of the Getting Git Right tour.

Pull requests are an easy way for teammates to request your feedback on their code. But, as your projects are successful and your team grows, the number of pull requests coming your way can get overwhelming. With Stash 3.4, we've made it easier for you to manage your pull request load and reduce the noise. Now,  emails will be aggregated into batch notifications for each pull request and sent after a period of inactivity. We think it's so useful that we've made it the default, but you
