Issue and Pull Request mentions

Follow

If you are in a repository chat room, you can type # and then start typing a bunch of numbers. Naturally, these numbers should respond to an issue or pull request number. You'll notice that when you start typing these magic numbers that a typeahead will appear so you can see what issue or pull request you are referring to.

The output will look like this:

You'll notice that the issue is coloured green, this reflects the status of the item (open).

If you hover over the issue or pull request, you'll see a preview like this:

Clicking on the mention will, naturally, open it in GitHub.

You can also mention issues and pull requests across repositories by typing owner/repo#<number>

    An example of the owner/repo# would be useful, especially for more complicated repo patterns. E.g. msysgit/msysgit has a double name... some with dotted parts etc which may be an issues for some.

    Is there a way to see all the mentions related to an specific issue? Thanks!

    @Philip it's pretty much standard GitHub syntax. If you are in the msysgit/msysgit room, you can just #123 for issue 123. Say you are in msysgit/somerepo and want to reference an issue in msysgit/msysgit then just type msysgit/msysgit#123

    @molinama There isn't at the moment yet. Will keep that suggestion in mind.

    Seeing an issue where Gitter is unable to find the PR mentioned, though I am owner of the repository. However, the repository has issues disabled. That may be the cause.

    Does the mentions feature require GitHub integration to handle repos under organizations?

    I have room for https://github.com/SOCI org, there is repositoru with Isues under https://github.com/SOCI/soci.

    Now, when an issue is mentioned, then Open on GitHub loads incomplete URLs, like https://github.com//issues/177

    I think I understand it now.
    The mentions have nothing to do with the GitHub integration.
    Simply, plain #XXX does not work. Instead, ORG/repo#XXX format needs to be used. Then URLs are generated correctly.
