      Another alternative is to use "@mentions" in the description of an issue to notify end users about the issue being created, and the recipients can then decide if they want to watch the issue.

      Original request description:

      As a Project Manager, I want to make sure that respective team members (including me) are informed about new issue creation and depending on an issue type are automatically added as watchers. I want this action to become inseparable from issue creation so that the original issue reporter does not have to inform anyone about issue creation manually. I want to be able to control the watchers' list and nominate the users.
