Hello there! Just to confirm, are Discourse announcements relayed here on Zulip (and vice versa)?

@Donald Sebastian Leung It only goes one way: from Discourse to Zulip.

@Donald Sebastian Leung It seems that you have two different Zulip accounts. Should I disable the other one (@Donald Sebastian Leung)?

Yes please, I changed my email address not long ago and Zulip identifies accounts based on email address instead of GitHub account for some reason

@Cyril Cohen maybe that's a bug that we should report to Zulip then?

If there is a bug we should report indeed. However 1. I cannot understand the bug, I see only one account for @Donald Sebastian Leung, was the other one removed? 2. The feature that identifies people based on their githubnoreply mail is quite recent, so if one created another account before the feature was activated, I would not consider this a bug , is that the case?

I disabled the other account.

@Donald Sebastian Leung should confirm but IIUC he always logged in through GitHub and this resulted in two distinct account when he changed his GitHub e-mail address. Is this correct?
