New submission from Brett C. <brett at python.org>:

I noticed that any user can edit the nosy list on any bug report.  Is there any
worry of random users coming along and editing the list in a malicious way
(e.g., adding every person to single issue)?  I can see why the developers want
to be able to add people to the nosy list, but I don't know if regular users
need to.

Perhaps it would be enough to just allow the submitter of a bug to be able to
assign the bug initially to get the attention of someone (assuming that if an
issue is assigned to someone they are implicitly added to the nosy list or at
least notified of the assignment).  Occasionally developers will tell someone to
create a bug or patch item and assign it to them.  That is probably enough to
get someone's initial attention.  After that it is up to the developers, I
think, to pull in who needs to come in to help with the issue.
