      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 to action to become inseparable from issue creation, so that the original issue reporter does not have to inform anyone about issu creation manually. I want to be able to control the watchers' list and nominate the users.
