Or maybe we need to tweak the userprefs for bugzilla user
gstreamer-bugs at lists.sourceforge.net to not send emails for the less
interesting changes. If we can't agree on which options to turn off then
someone could set up a gstreamer-bugs-lite at lists.sourceforge.net.

As a first stab, how about we enable:
New Comments are added
New Attachments are added
The bug is resolved or verified

And disable the following:
I'm added to or removed from this capacity
Priority, status, severity, and/or milestone changes
Keywords field changes
CC field changes
Any field not mentioned above changes

So if someone changes one of these and they want to inform the world of
the change then they just need to add a comment.
