Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:

2) Create a project
2) Go to and try to add yourself as bug supervisor
3) Boom! OOPS-1367G1058
  UserCannotSubscribePerson: name12 does not have permission to subscribe name12.

My fault! It's concerning that no tests broke. I incorrectly used 'is' to compare the user and person, when I should have used '=='.

Reading the view code also revealed another issue: there is a permission conflict. When setting the bug supervisor, you can set it to any person, or a team you administer. This implicitly adds a structural subscription for them. In other places you can only subscribe *yourself* or a team you administer. The latter restriction is now implemented in the model, so attempting to set the bug supervisor to another non-team person will fail similarly. I'm not sure how best to resolve this one.

Hi Sumana,

According to the OOPS you posted, you're trying to set someone else as bug supervisor for a project, which isn't the same as this bug. I've filed bug 479331 about this for you.

Also, please note that the "In progress" status means "Someone is working on fixing this bug." Please don't use it unless you're working on the bug in question.
