We should allow anyone to add attachments to any bug, just like we let anyone add comments. (we do let them comment, right?) Also allowing anyone to set keywords would make the bugathon run more smoothly although the paranoid may not want this since it means that random people could also erase keywords.

I checked the attachment stuff before we pushed, and I just checked it again on my test installation. People with no privileges should be able to attach stuff to bugs.
meant to say, "and it does work on my test installation."

This is another bug that's been sitting around for a while. While attachments work, keywords don't. You have to have privs or be the reporter, assignee, or QA for a bug in order to add a keyword.
i think letting anyone set keywords is a bad idea, since that could result in bogus searches if someone mislabels a bug with an incorrect keyword. keywords rely upon educating a set of people as to what they mean and the circumstances under which they should be used. letting anyone change them dilutes the search strength. marking as won't fix. if someone strongly feels i'm wrong, please reopen and reassign to me.
