Can't comment a task without subscribing to it
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Unsubscribing after the fact is rather ugly.
Would be interesting to know how many bugzilla users don't add themselves to cc by default when commenting (DB query on bugzilla user preferences needed).

I guess the principle here is that posting a comment means to join a discussion, and this is why you get CCed by default.

Joining a discussion to say something and then leave is technically possible (just unsubscribe manually), but I understand why this would not be encouraged with a specific configuration.

This is my opinion and this is what I would expect upstream to say. Proposing to decline this request.

I'm declining this. Most of the time you rather join a discussion and are interested in following it instead of adding a drive-by comment and not being interested in further discussion.
I don't consider the latter common enough to add a checked-by-default "Subscribe me when I add this comment" checkbox to the task UI, and the one additional click on "Unsubscribe" seems acceptable.
