How much is this an problem? I imagine it should be possible to create
some sort of app that queries the issues with a tag (I assume gitlab has
some sort of API for this) and automatically subscribes them.

Note: it looks like I may not have access to lts-team. I see a "request
access" link, which I will click. I mention this here only because it
might affect others as well.

This sounds like a good idea to me.

Just need to come up with an appropriate list of tags to represent the
status. e.g. if a particular TODO item is waiting on response from
security team for example.
