Bugzilla default-assignee vs default-cc

I was talking to one of the Bugzilla admins (Kristof) earlier today and he pointed out that the default assignee for lldb bugs in the lldb-dev list, and that it might be better to change that from default-assignee to default-cc. That way, when the bug gets assigned, the mailing list continues to get updates.

I guess changing this depends on what our intentions are: do we just want to notify the mailing list of new bugs or if we want to keep the list in the loop for every bug. The latter might mean more traffic, depending on how many people actually assign bugs to themselves.

Please speak up if you think this is worth changing!

I actually think the current behaviour strikes a good balance for the noise-to-signal ratio.

Speaking for myself, I wouldn't want to get an email for every update to all lldb bugs out there. However, I like to have an overview of new bugs coming in, and when I find a particular bug interesting, I can always add myself to the cc list so I am notified of updates to the bugs I care about.

Can't we just have a list like lldb-bugs (similar to llvm-bugs) as the
default-cc? This way I would have all the bugzilla talk also available
in my mail, which means I can use my mail client to read comments and
search them. And people that don't care about every bug update just
don't subscribe to this list.

Sounds good to me.

Would that be in addition to having lldb dev as the default assignee (as is the case today) or instead (using unassigned) so Bugzilla traffic only goes to that list? If you mean the latter, then +1 from me too.

Yeah, the latter sounds more like what I had in mind.

And thanks for doing this by the way!
