As far as I know, you get these emails because you have configured as  
email address in your trac preferences - https://core.trac.wordpress.org/prefs

If you remove that I believe you will get no more emails.

I find this feature quite useful as it lets me filter the volume of  
email I receive from the WordPress trac into two separate folders -  
one for tickets I have shown a direct interest in and one for the  
firehose of every change which can at times get quite busy!
