I just accidentally changed the assignee of Bug 366828 because i was fixing the component. Bug 366828 was ASSIGNED and jesse and i agree that for assigned bugs it makes much less sense to automatically change the assignee. note that ideally there should be a way to automatically fix just the qa contact, but that's really a different bug.
Posting on reed's request: The way I would like this to work, ideally, is the following: 1) If the current assignee is the default assignee for the current component, default to reassigning assignee and QA contact. 2) If the current assignee is NOT the default assignee, reassign the QA contact but NOT the assignee. I can't think of a case where we want to change components without changing the QA contact. A poor substitute for 2 is 2') If the current assignee is NOT the default assignee, reassign the assignee and QA contact, but cc the old assignee.
Rearranging this component to not have me as the default assignee, so that it doesn't appear like I'm intending to work on bugs that other people could be taking care of if they didn't think I was already doing them. If this bug is a software issue on b.m.o and you'd like to fix it, the modified source is now available for the patching (see bug 373688). Reassigning to the new default owner.
