5 No reason that I'm aware of why it was turned off. That said, I'm
6 generally leery of enabling technology for technology's sake. So far, I
7 haven't seen any indication of how this would be useful. Folks have said
8 devs are free to use it or ignore it as they see fit. That doesn't seem
9 (to me) like it's going to provide any sort of valuable, useful feedback to
10 the team or the community beyond what we already get with CC lists.
12 Plus, as someone else noted, our users are not exactly famous for being
13 able to use bugzilla correctly in its current form (to be fair, most of the
14 blame for this falls on bugzilla, which has a horrid UI imo).
16 Basically, if the argument is, "'s there. Why *not* turn it on?"
17 then I don't see that as being particularly compelling. It sounds like a
18 solution in search of a problem.
