Description

We'd like the ability to add certain people as watchers to issues in particular categories. The members should be able to unwatch if they choose. For example, user John wants to be added to all issues put into the "Marketing" category. When a new ticket is created in "Marketing" he should be added as a watcher and if a ticket is changed to "Marketing" he should be added as a watcher.

I'd like to see this feature expanded to allow a default watcher on all issues in a project as well.

I wrote a patch for this problem.

In the issue category settings,
we can select default watchers for the category.
Then in the new issue,
default watchers are checked and hilighted according to the category.

You are right.
I notice that my patches are not fulfill what this ticket's reporter wanted to do.
They simply simulate Bugzilla's category default CC.
Please forget them, sorry.

app/views/watchers/_new.html.erb

<% form_remote_tag :url => {:controller => 'watchers',
                             :action => (watched ? 'create' : 'append'),
-                            :object_type => watched.class.name.underscore,
+                            :object_type => (watched_type ? watched_type.name.underscore : watched.class.name.underscore),

When create new issue, click Search for watchers to add and it does not add to the list.
And it does not work stable with redmine_anonymous_watchers plugin
