Thanks for the suggestion.  I didn't know about that.

At the moment, however, I have nothing configured here - and AFAIK I 
never have had - and I _have_ received emails in the past for most of 
the Gerrit jobs that I have commented on.  Presumably, therefore, there 
is a default email notification behaviour that doesn't require anything 
under "Watched Projects".  I wonder why that would mostly work, but 
sometimes (apparently) not.
