Thanks for this Ivan. Yes, if there is some set up that would allow an email reply to be included in github that would be great. I replied to a couple messages and they weren't included. I ended up pasting them in to Github after the fact. Maybe it depends on whether or how you are subscribed or ask for notifications or some such...
If I am the only one with this problem, we can take it off list and I will try to sort it out.

I would have to see if there is a specific setup for this (I do not think so; maybe somebody on the list does), but I routinely use the mail reply to add a comment to github. Actually, I believe I use mostly my email client for this rather than the web site…
