Target version:-


We occasionally get users updating issues that they didn't create, nor are they watching.

What happens then is they don't get email -- neither for the update they made, nor for any future updates.

What we would like is to automatically have such a user added as watcher to the issue.

Suggest that this be made an option, with it default to "off" for old behaviour.
