i'd very much like to have a feature similar to Patch #222. that is, a per-user option to:

  • "auto-watch issues i've modified" (i.e., autowatch if i create or modify an issue)
  • "auto-watch issues assigned to me"

Unlike Balazs (author of Patch #222), i'd want users to be able to choose their own "autowatch" policy.

Other than Patch #222, I couldn't find any other mention of this feature. Are there plans to implement it?

If you're going to add this, might as well go all the way and let users define issue filters to auto-watch.
