Re: Explicitely Cc bug reporters

As raised by Berhard[0], this could bother some reporters, OTOH - as
Kumar said[1] - other posters would actually like being more closely
involved with their bugs.

Why not include a pseudo-header to subscribe to bugreports on submit?
This way reportbug could include a question asking if the user wants to
follow the bug closely or just fire-and-forget. Should leave the choice
to the submitter and still leave the option of explicitly using
NNN-submitter@b.d.o

Disclaimer: I have no idea how feasible this is. I never even looked at
the BTS code.

Cheers
