Why are there so many emails when a merge is completed?

+6 votes
I just got this question from a member, and realized that my answer wasn't correct.   

When a merge is completed....who gets emails to indicate that it was completed?

I thought....

1) The person that proposed the merge

2) The managers of each of the profiles managed.

But, I just realized I got two emails and all I did was propose the merge, I am not on either profile as a manager.

Any thoughts?

I get only one email to alert me that a merge I proposed was completed.
So far I only get one and that is after a merge is completed.

It says right there that the person who proposed the merge gets an email.

Agreed, trying to figure out why I got TWO emails for one merge.
One for each profile?  Remember a merge is two contributions.
I think it is a minor software problem. Maybe the result of a recent revision. I don't recall it happening until a few weeks ago.
I still get just one email for some merges, but I've also been puzzled recently when I received two emails for a merge where I believe I should only receive one email (because I proposed a merge between two profiles for which I'm not on the trusted lists).

I had 2 completions for this one, but the log says I proposed it twice, somehow


In this case, I only proposed it once, but I got two block messages, and the system now has the UMM twice


So basically if the merge is in the system twice, as sometimes happens, then you get two messages.
