we also desperately want this functionality on drupal.org for:

a) subscribing to individual project issues (without having to post  
the annoying "subscribing" followups all the time)

b) subscribing to all release nodes from a given project

i'd *really* like to avoid implementing these from scratch in  
project_issue.module and project_release.module, respectively.

dries, killes, et al, can we open a discussion about running the  
subscriptions.module (or equivalent, if there's a better alternative  
in contrib already) on d.o, so i don't have to re-invent the wheel,  
just for the sake of being "inside" project*.module?

-derek (dww)

p.s. maybe we should move this thread to infrastructure at d.o... ?
