I want to be subscribed to bugs I submit (by default). It annoys me
that this doesn't happen and I miss replies or updates. Occaisionally
I submit bugs I'm not actually very interested in, but that's not the
usual case.

Can someone remind me what the current rules are (or where it's
written down). I know it doesn't work the way I expect it ought to, but
I forget/never-understood exactly how it does work.

Do maintainers always get the initial mail to a bug, but not the rest,
unless they subscribe? That seems rather unhelpful if so (as
illustrated by Mr Capper's frustration at the start of this thread)
