[drupal-devel] Project comments not getting noticed

I've observed a rather unfortunate pattern with submitting project
issues and patches: I submit a project issue (possibly with a path) and
hear nothing, nothing, nothing.
Sometimes there actually is a response on the page, but I don't have any
e-mail or anything else to give me a heads up to go look at it.
is a great example. I had no idea that anyone had requested changes to
my patch until I happened to come across this one again looking for
another patch I thought I had submitted.
This is just one example of this pattern. Another example:
Two months went by between my original post and follow up #1, in which
the bug was rejected as "won't fix" and I was asked to send it to the
htmlarea.com forums. Again, I only found about it because I happened to
be looking for another htmlarea issue.
Any chance we could get a "send me an e-mail when somebody follows up to
a thread I've posted to" feature added? I think this could significantly
increase the quality of submissions and discussions about patches.
