Description

We face the problem that we have many project members with the right to add watchers.
In the new issue form, we get a very big checkbox list of possible watchers.
It would be better to have a more compact view on this selection,
e.g.

  • role bases filters
  • java script drop down (only drop down watchers list if you wanna add a watcher, but not default on open new issue form
  • combobox with name search and name auto completion which filters scrollable drop checkbox list for entered user name

Fixed in r12673. The default checkbox are not displayed if there are more than 20 members and you'll have to use the seacrh windows to add watchers.
