Just browsed the issue list, I am missing the list of people who watch the issue.

It is important so you know how many people interested in an issue/feature.

It also important so you can discuss related issues offline.

Can you please consider showing the current watchers to the issue view?

Thank you!

I have built a patch (against the 0.7-stable branch) which allows one to review "watchers" of a ticket, and make your own additions. At the moment anyone who is on a project can add watchers to any ticket. This is fine for our (i.e. my) uses, but obviously needs a permission associated with it. The patch is not 100% consistent with redmine's code structure, as far as I see, but works effectively. I did not know how to make it more generic so that watches on other objects could be done.

I would appreciate feedback and improvements.

We are going to try this current patch out and may make the additions of an associated role permission, and an additions of watchers at issue creation time.

I have steered clear of removing watchers (would be pretty straightforward to add), since I think people should only be able to remove themselves from tickets (but may get added as a watcher by anyone)
