I am trying to wrap around my head around the hooks. The first immediate hook is errbit knowing the application's github repository. The second is the airbreak.rb file where the app (and I assume all of its deploys) actually points to errbit application and its services. So I understand airbreak config... 'send my errors to errbit'. But why then does errbit need to know about to the repo?

A corollary question: if there are multiple deploys, say 'staging1' and 'staging2' are added, they will all be handled by errbit and show the non-traditional deploy name (unless stated in ignore_environments config line) ?

It asks for your repo so it can link you to the line of code that triggered the error.

And yes, any errors from environments mentioned in ignore, will be skipped.
