You are right, my bad. Only closing gets send out to the submitter.

And with that in mind I'm very much for subscribing the submitter
automatically. Half the time I forget to CC the submitter when I write
something to a bug and I guess many other people forget that when
commentating too.

There should be a pseudo header that reportbug can add if subscribtion
isn't automatic. When submitting a bug one can't mail nnn-subscribe as
the number isn't known yet but it would be nice to do both in one go.


PS: sorry for doing a 180, I wasn't thinking clearly before.
