I personally prefer not to be CCed on bug reports. I don't want to
recieve any mail about a bug unless it is asking me to supply more
information or if the bug is being closed due to a fix or because the
software was removed from Debian. I sometimes get people CCing me even
when there is no need to (#545785 most recently).
Given the massive thread this post generated, with a variety of
opinions, I would propose:
A subscribe pseudo-header for submit@ mails that has values 'yes' and 'no'.
A way for people to set the default value of the subscribe
pseudo-header for new bugs.
