Re: Who gets an email when with bugreports [was: Re: Unauthorised activity surrounding tbb package]
Firstly, I should say: I'm sorry that I got the design of this wrong
when I set up the BTS. I hadn't appreciated at the time that bug
reports are actually (amongst other things) ad-hoc mailing lists.

Yes for submitters.
No for contributors; that wouldn't be very opt-in. Instead,
contributors should get an auto-subscribe confirmation request email
when they first email a particular bug.

This would be nice but is IMO not essential.
