to me than assignee changes and status updates.   Comments are part of the discussion about
the issue and thus belong on the dev list for all to see.

I agree with this concern.
We don't want Jira to become a silo where decisions are made and
conversations are had to the exclusion of others - there have been
plenty of conversations of late that have only happened in Jira and if
they weren't copied to the list people not subscribed to the ticket
would have missed the conversation completely. Yes it is noisy, but I
don't see a good way around it that doesn't also potentially exclude
people from discussions.
