[hibernate-dev] Jira notifications

I am looking into the problem of hibernate-issues no longer getting Jira 
notifications.  One possible reason is the use of the custom 
"Participants" field in our notification scheme.  I am wondering if we 
ought to remove that rule from the notification scheme. Atlassian have 
added an "autowatch" field that kind of does the same thing.  Basically 
each user can enable/disable autowatch for themselves, which controls 
whether they are automatically added as a watcher of any issues they 
comment on.  The notification scheme would then notify them as a watcher.

One downside to the current notification scheme is that participants can 
never opt-out of notifications.   So this might be a worthwhile change 

Dunno if that solves the problem with notifications to hibernate-issues 
or not.  But wanted to see what everyone else felt.
