Thank you, this is useful.

I understand this would fix the problem for issues you were already
watching on Redmine: on every issue you were watching, as part of the
migration process, we add a :star: reaction in your name. Then, you
can list those issues with the "My-reaction = :star:" filter (the UI
actually display nice emojis).

But you'll still have to manually track, somehow, the issues you'll
start participating in on GitLab; you could use the same trick, or use
your activity view.

Do you confirm this would solve the problem you've reported?

Understood. I'll make this clear to the developers.
