[Tracker-discuss] [issue76] Want just any user to be able to edit nosy list?

Actually, an anonymous (unsigned-in user) cannot edit an issue. A signed-in
user who did something malicious would leave an audit trail. So it isn't
that big a worry.

On the plus side, I often add someone else to an issue's nosy list when I
add a comment that I want them to see or if I know they should be aware of
the issue. So it's a feature.
