User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/2009073021 Firefox/3.0.13 Build Identifier: 3.4.4 When marking one bug as a duplicate of another, the reporter of the duplicate is generally added to the cc list of the master (if they are allowed to see the master and they were not the reporter of the master). However, adding the reporter of the duplicate to the cc list of the master seems inappropriate if that reporter has been disabled. The process of adding the reporter of the duplicate to the cc list of the master should either: 1. Be skipped in the same way it is skipped if the same user is the reporter of both duplicate and master. OR 2. Prompt the user making the change for confirmation, in the same way they are prompted for confirmation if the reporter of the duplicate cannot see the master bug. I prefer the first option, since I don't foresee a situation where a disabled user should ever be added to the CC list (at least not on my local installation). Reproducible: Always
There are situations in which disabled users should be added to the CC list of bugs--mostly if somebody is watching that disabled user. If the user has bugmail disabled, it should be generally harmless to have them added to the CC, and it still allows watchers to receive email.
So are you saying you want to leave it functioning completely as-is or would you willing to have it prompt the user, as in case #2 (reporter of duplicate can't see master)? Configurable? This should be a fairly rare occurrence.
Um, I really appreciate the patch, but I think I'd prefer to leave it as-is for now. I bet it'd be a really simple extension to write, though, if you wanted.

Thanks, but it's way not worth the hassle of an extension.
