If you want every message that is sent to a bug, currently that means
subscribing to the bug.
It's known that the methods of subscribing to a bug and figuring out
who gets what mail are suboptimal, and making them better is one of my
However, what won't change is that submitters will only be
"guaranteed" to get messages which are sent to bugnum-submitter@
unless they have also subscribed to the bug. [Making it so -submitter
means "make sure the submitter gets this once" and making it easier to
subscribe to a bug at submission time is one of my goals.]
This can't be happening to me. I've got tenure.
