Yes, those were a lot of notifications but I don't feel that they
were excessive. After all, you did an issue sweep and this is
something people might want to be aware of.

I guess the important thing is that the "[Update]" tag in the
JIRA notification must be reliably mean "meta data changed".
Then people can quickly glance over those in the IRC.

I suggest to disable "Issue Update" notifications go to IRC channel.

What is the proportion of the "Issue Update" vs. all other
notifications over the lifetime of a JIRA issue? I would
expect that to be < 50%.

I'm not against filtering it but I feel that the current surge
in IRC "spam" is only temporary and might skew our
cost / benefit perception.
