After you log in click the circle in the top right corner and select Settings. On the page that pops up click the Notfications link that is half-way down the left-hand side set of choices.

Your description of where to click is very clear, even to someone like myself who'd never ever think to click on some unlabelled and uninformative icon - thanks!

There is also "Watch" - is this the equivalent of getting all GIMP bug reports in the way that such was done for Bugzilla?

There is also "On mention" and "Participate". Does "On mention" include "Participate"? Can both be checked?

The "Custom" option under the Global notifications offers more control.

Has anyone else managed to set up getting emails in a way that's equivalent to emails sent out by Bugzilla?

AFAICT, we don't have the same level of controls over notifications as we had with Bugzilla. The use of Custom notification settings, either at the project level or at the Global level, is as close as we can get.

Hmm, that Notifications page is not exactly clear. Apparently I'm a member of the Group GNOME and the Project GIMP. So I did the following:

* Set Global notifications to "On mention" and checked the box to "Receive notifications about your own activity", so hopefully this will apply to all GNOME Projects other than GIMP, and will only result in emails if I actually ever file a bug report with a GNOME Project other than GIMP.

* Set the GIMP "Project" notifications to "Watch", in the hopes that this is equivalent to the settings I had on Bugzilla, where I got copies of all GIMP bug report comments, closings, etc.

Hopefully the above settings won't result in a total flood of unwanted emails!

Regarding Custom notification settings, the descriptions of the various options are as clear as mud. Is there a link to actually understandable explanations of the available custom options? Or a list of recommended options to check?
