[NTLK] Need E-Mail address for posting Einstein-related questions

Hi all,

I'm a GitHub novice, so please bear with me...

A long time ago, I registered at GitHub for the pguyot/Einstein repository.
This might not even be correct phrasing, maybe I only told them I wanted to
watch that repository. I don't recall what exactly I did back then, and how.

Be it as it may, after that I started getting E-Mails that tell me what was
changed in that repository, and by whom. This is exactly what I wanted since
although I'm not actively writing Einstein code at the moment, I want to
stay informed.

I was always under the impression that if I were to reply to one of these
E-Mails, I'd reach all the Einstein experts. Seems I was mistaken. I tried
this yesterday, not really expecting it to work, since the E-Mail address
behind pguyot/Einstein has "noreply" in its name. The address behind the
"From" field (notifications at github dot com) sounds more promising, but I
chickened out since this address is so... general! Although I was assuming
that Github would only forward my mail to a subset of GitHub users that's
based on my E-Mail address, I didn't want to spam thousands of GitHub users'
inboxes in case I'm wrong.

Is there an official way to send an E-Mail to all people registered to (or
watching?) a particular repository? Must this be done from the GitHub web
site or can you simply use a particular E-Mail address? If the latter: Which
address is this?

Being able to reach all Einstein developers at short notice would be very
helpful if you have an Einstein-related question or suggestion.
