Yes, we need to change this.  Today we just received our first
complaint from someone getting this notifications who is not involved
with the project.

if we just set the default owners to "none", is it easy for someone to
then go and "claim" an issue to take ownership of it?   That might be
the easiest solution.

And having "unowned" issues is good for another reason.  It shows new
project members areas where they can step in and help.

Who has rights to do these updates in Bugzilla?  (Maybe we need more
BZ administrators?)
