assignee is added to subscribers after task edit
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When a task is assigned a user but they aren't also explicitly subscribed to it, any change to the task using the "Edit Task" window will also add them as a subscriber.

steps to reproduce:

  1. create a new task, assign to user X but do not add X as subscriber
  2. click "Edit Task" to open editor but make no changes. note that X is not listed under "Subscribers".
  3. click "Save Changes"
  4. note task now has X as subscriber. the task's timeline shows "added a subscriber: X"

Thanks, your reproduction instructions are clear and complete. I was able to reproduce this by following your instructions and narrow it down to a root cause. This should be fixed shortly.
