Ideally only the participants involved in the particular MR should be picked. Note that currently there is a huge gap between the ''Participate'' and ''On mention'' levels in the notification settings. With the former, I get spammed with notifications whenever a new MR is created. With the later, I won’t receive any notification (even someone replied my comments) unless explicitly @ by someone.
