Don't include new status for issues in email subject
Ideally, the subject would just contain the project name, the tracker, the issue #, and the subject of the issue. This is useful because it allows email clients to thread all emails relating to a single issue together. This is the behaviour already, except when the status is changed.
Also, of interest, text in the subject enclosed in square brackets is ignored for the purposes of threading, but I wouldn't follow the PHP bug tracker's example of including the information there, for it is in the body anyway. Bugzilla, like we currently do, puts the bug # in square brackets. This is harmless (for we'll never work around subject changes short of including a Reply-To header).

I probably should start a new issue, or can someone help to change the status of this issue from "Closed" to "Reopened"?
It seems that #1401 doesn't fix the email grouping problem; at least with Gmail, email notifications from the same issue but with different subjects (the issue status changed) don't group together. I don't know how Gmail groups emails (i.e., how those headers added in #1401 fail with Gmail), but removing the issue status from the email subjects should help.
Can people that use other email clients also suggest if email grouping works for them or not?

+1 for this
#1401 doesn't work with Gmail. Reply from Gmail: "A conversation will break off into a new thread if the subject line of the conversation is changed" Source: http://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=5900
Same here I would like to re-open this issue. How do we do that?
