So the aim of the patch was to completely omit bugmail in case of CC
list only changes, in order to make IRC + wikibugs-l@ less noisy?
1) I assume this silently broke "The CC field changes" settings on
for everybody in
the past. "Assume" because my time machine back to 4.0.9 is broken.
2) wikibugs-l@ is also set as "globalwatchers" ("who should receive a
copy of every notification mail Bugzilla sends").
After the Bugzilla upgrade wikibugs-l@ *finally* works reliably for me
and seems to send ALL bugmail.
Before I didn't receive bugmail anymore after wikibugs-l@ got removed as
assignee of a report && when wikibugs-l@ was not listed either as
default CC of the corresponding component (test example: bug 42226).
These might be related [or not] to dropping the hack.
In any case, I'd like to challenge reapplying this patch, because:
1) Don't set wikibugs-l@ as globalwatchers if you don't want it to
receive all bugmail about all changes.
2) If you want a certain account to not receive email in case of
changing X in Bugzilla, edit the accounts's "when to send mail" settings
in Bugzilla to not to send bugmail in case of only changing X.
Obviously this interferes with 1) currently.
