How to automatically add participants to merge requests

When someone creates a merge request for a given project I want a list of people to be added to it as a participant automatically so that these poeple can:

  • See new code merge requests
  • Optionally add/reply to review comments
  • Browse the diffs

How is that possible?

At the moment we have to manually do it by: @j_bloggs @a_nother .. etc...

One way could be to create a merge request template that has a list of those people you want to have notified.

In terms of seeing MRs, replying to comments/reviewing and browsing, this has probably more to do with project and user permissions.
