And to add to the confusion, the BTS does not automatically subscribe the
contributors to a thread, and it is hard to keep track, among the recipients
known for disliking to be CCed on mailing lists, who wants to be CCed on the
BTS or not, (not to mention that one can not check if they are subscribed or
not to mailing lists that would receive the BTS email).
