Description

If issues are restricted in use to actionable items and forums are used for general discussion and brainstorming, it would be nice to be able to add watchers to threads (by permission, of course).

If a project manager could add others as watchers to threads, they would be informed of their creation and updates (much like adding watchers to issues).

At the moment, there's no way to inform a subset of a project's members that a thread is relevant to them.
