This is subjective. I know of several bug reporters who would either
be happy to see that their bug is being dicussed/attended to, or even
be able to pariticipate in the fixing efforts if their technical
knowledge falls in the category of that bug.
Just my view, I try to remember to Cc the reporter, but I'd much
rather prefer being subscribed to bugs as I report them.
