subscribe a team to see private bugs

Asked by Curtis Hovey on 2009-05-25

As the owner of a project
I want to subscribe the company team to bugs
so that the whole company can see the bugs, but do not get emails

In general, since projects can have defaut private artifacts like bugs and branches, projects must have a way to enable a trusted group to see them without being the bug supervisor.

We need to document how this is done on and on the canonical wiki.

The official answer is an ugly hack that will cause other problems for teams, but there is no right way to do this without bug subscriptions having a notification level like branch subscriptions.

After speaking to Bjorn, Barry and Brad (hence forth known as the 3Bs) I believe there is a recipe to do this in Launchpad, though is has problems.

This works, though it requires extra work.
