I'm not really sure what you are talking about here to be honest. I've
been making a few claims in this thread:

1. It is impossible, without manually cc'ing yourself to every bug, to
get emails for all technical discussions taking place in bugzilla.

This turned out to not be true. It is in fact possible by subscribing
to the public-html-bugzilla email list. However no one had mentioned
this possibility previously on this list. And it is somewhat more
cumbersome than subscribing to other lists due to a lack of
'subscribe' links in the lists.w3.org page. So I still think my
bringing up this issue and researching it, has been of value to this

2. cc'ing the public-html list in bugzilla does not work.

Adding someone to the cc list in bugzilla usually results in that
email address being notified for most changes in the bug. Definitely
including when discussion takes place in the bug. However this does
not seem to be the case when cc'ing the public-html@w3.org email
address to the cc list of a bug. No emails are sent to the public-html
list even though public-html has been added to the cc list of the bug.

Yes, there are other instances when bugzilla sends emails to the
public-html list. Such as when the "NE" keyword is added to a bug.
This does not however change the fact that adding public-html to the
cc list in bugzilla does not yield the expected results of public-html
receiving emails for subsequent comments added to bug.

I hope this makes things clear.
