Why are we not just treating this as a bug? If the privacy model is that
non-privileged people should not be notified about security bugs, then
non-privileged people not be notified about security bugs, no matter
whether they're using watchbugzilla or watchcommits or anything else.
Relying on manual filtering by not auto-approving watch requests does
not smell like the right 'fix' to me - humans are fallible, after all.
Shouldn't we just treat this as a bug in Bugzilla, report it, and get it
fixed?
