>When changes are made to a bug, an email is sent to the person who reported it and to the person to whom the bug is assigned.  However, email is not sent to the person who is making the changes to the bug.  So, if a bug has been submitted and assigned to a developer, and then the developer adds comments to the bug, then those comments will be emailed to the reporter but not to the developer.  Additional people can be added to receive these change emails by adding them to the CC list.  To remove people from the CC list, simply select the people to be removed and submit the form.</P
><P
>Files can be added to a bug as attachments by clicking on the <SPAN
CLASS="GUILABEL"
>Create Attachment</SPAN
> link.  This will bring up another form where you can supply a short description and browse for the file to be uploaded.  Attachments can be viewed (and can be deleted by administrators) from the attachment list.</P
><P
>Adding comments to a bug allows you to provide more detail about what caused the bug or what the expected behavior was, but also allow the developer and the user to communicate about a bug while keeping a history of those notes.  Comments that are added to a bug will be emailed as described previously.  HTML tags will be stripped from the comments, but there are two special character sequences that can be used to create links when the comments are displayed:</P
