Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1003910
Needinfo adds the target user to the CC list
Last modified: 2013-09-04 02:45:38 EDT
Description of problem:
Not sure which roles are affected. In my case, I set needinfo from the reporter and Bugzilla added them to the CC list. Why? Reporters get all comments automatically, don't they? This is unnecessary, not to mention that it's not very nice when software does things on my behalf that I didn't intentionally do.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_activity.cgi?id=784565 (search for my login). The e-mail that was sent to me also contains:
Been set as the requestee on a flag will CC: that user on the bug if they have the "Automatically add me to the CC list of bugs I am requested to review" turned on. This is on by default in upstream Bugzilla and Red Hat Bugzilla. It makes no difference what relationship you or the requestee user currently have to the bug.
If a user has an issue with this, their best course of action would be to change this preference in their settings. (FWIW, I have this option disabled in my preferences)
Well, then it's a strange new feature with questionable default settings. Shouldn't BZ ask me if I want to CC the user at the same time? Or, shouldn't it consider the reporter (and QA contact) a special case?

No, it definitely should be up to the user (the requestee) to decide if they want to be CC:ed on the bug, not the person making the change (the requester).

No, it shouldn't, for the reason stated above.
