Yes, the list of subscribers to a bug report will soon be visible by
default. So this may help in the short term.

In the medium term, I think tags would be a more sensible way of
tracking these requests, but that requires implementing several missing
tag-related features in Launchpad. (I've linked to these from the "Tags"
section of <>.)

I'll raise this issue with the other Launchpad developers.
