There are three buttons when looking at a package in AUR: "Vote", "Notify" and "Flag Out-of-date". What does the "Notify" button do?

If you mouse over the Notify button, the field title says 'New Comment Notification' – jasonwryan Aug 28 '12 at 21:01

If you click the notify button, you will get email notifications about new comments in this specific package.

Afterwards you are able to click the same button again to unsubscribe from these notifications if you don't want to get new notifications anymore.
