Description

With the update to 2.5.1 and the implementation of feature #8562, you now have to add users one at a time, instead of en masse.

It would seem more effective if the interface allowed you to search for a user, check the checkbox, then search for another user, check their checkbox, and search for a third user and check that checkbox then click "Add" and all three users are added to the watch list. The current implementation breaks that functionality.

The attached patch resolves this issue. It will persist the checked checkboxes and add multiple users at once (even after filtering).

Just bumping to make note that adding multiple watchers from multiple searches still doesn't work. Updated the patch to work with 3.4.2.

Another attempt. I've deployed the code on my 5.0.3 instance. Seems to work. This time the patch touches the JavaScript only. It transforms checkboxes to hidden inputs to keep track of "checked" statuses.

The code doesn't influence the project members search and addition which uses a JavaScript fragment responses, not HTML.
