Move the watchers list to issue section
The issues view is split in two sections, the actual issue and the sidebar.
On the issues section there is everything centered around the issues actual context. The sidebar is mostly used to switch between the issue queries and has no relation to the issue itself. Except for the watchers list, which is separated from every other context on this view. This looks very odd to new users and it makes it hard to scan over the issue quickly. You always miss the watchers list.
I would like to propose to place it besides the rest of the issues information as this is the place I would look first for it.
You have all issue related information in one place. Additionally the watchers list is no longer hidden in the sidebar menu if you are using Redmine on mobile devices.

- The information is not so important
- If the issue is watched by many users, the section will take a lot of space and without an collapse/expand mechanism could become a nightmare
At the same time, I don't like it neither in the sidebar.
I think, after my tastes, I would prefer to have the Watchers as an attribute and show only the number of the watchers and on mouse over or on click, to show the entire list in a modal/pop-up/tooltip and maybe with a search mechanism.
