As far as I am aware, the notifications scheme was not changed due to JIRA
spam. Yes, I think notification settings are one of things only INFRA can
change. On the bright side, it appears we are on the "Accumulo
Notifications Scheme," which makes it sound like it wouldn't be as hard to
get custom changes for notifications as it is for permissions (INFRA really
wants projects to use an existing permissions scheme). Are you suggesting
we try to get watchers removed from the Work Logged On Issue notifications?
What about the assignee and reporter?
