So the aim of the patch was to completely omit bugmail

list only changes, in order to make IRC + wikibugs-l@ less noisy?
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.
Wikibugs-l is for technical people that follow it for the bug
information, not for "Joe Blogs [added/removed] himself from CC" and
CCing doesn't provide any information that is needed for that list,
That is why its hacked out. Wikibugs not receiving it is a bonus since
it just reads the wikibugs email list and spits it out.
Global watcher is the best option for what we want, Because it always
covers the bugs and the only other option really is rely on wikibugs-l
being added to the cc list which wasn't a reliable method at all (was
used before GW was enabled/present).
Can you propose a better option for this than defaulting the cc'er as wikibugs?
I doub't there are that that many people that want the wikibugs-l list
to receive a copy of every single change (Eg: cc changes) to the bug,
But that is probably a discussion for another thread.
