Summary0020876: Email notifications for category owners

It is possible to assign a user to a category so that any new bug will automatically be assigned to that user. He will receive a notification in this case. But if after that the issue is re-assigned to someone else, the category owner will no longer receive notifications for that issue.

It would be nice to implement this feature: send email notifications to users assigned to categories. This option should be configurable on [E-mail Notifications] page.

Add email notifications for users assigned to categories

Users who are assigned to categories can now receive email

on a per-project basis.

A common use case:
- A user was assigned to some category;
- When new issue is submitted to this category and "Assigned To" field
is empty, this issue is assigned to Category Owner (who receives a
- If we then re-assign issue to someone else, the Category Owner will no
longer receive notifications.

This commit makes it possible for category owners receiving
notifications in this case as well.
