Include plugin/theme slug in .org subscription emails

Description

Currently, if you're email subscribed to a specific plugin or theme forum's RSS feed, you'll get emails with the subject: "[WordPress.org Forums] Post title". And if you're subscribed to several of them, sometimes it's very difficult at a glance to derive which forum the email is for without visiting the thread.

It would be nice if the plugin or theme slug was included in the subject or body of those emails. Thoughts?

How about having something like "[WordPress.org Forums] (plugin-slug) Post title"? Or is that too simple and we need something more to help with filtering?

Replying to Otto42:

That sounds reasonable to me, you still have the important data:

1) Main location (WordPress.org Forums)
2) Resource (plugin/theme slug)
3) Post title

Another step would be adding "X replied to: ...", but I don't think it's necessary for as long as the rest is in the subject.

Added plugin-slug to email subject as described above. Re-open this ticket if there are issues with it that I did not forsee.

Additional: I did not add this to themes for now. Waiting for feedback to ensure that this works first. So please give me feedback saying that it works properly too. :)

The plugin slugs are working well, thanks for implementing those. Much better to grok subscription emails at a glance instead of playing that guessing game based on the topic title. Oh, and labels!

These are working for me too, and are a really nice addition :)
