Yeah, if we made the default foo-owner and cc foo-owner, then when you
took a bug, everyone would get a email because foo-owner is on there as
cc, but you might get two (one for you and one via foo owner)

Package maintainers would still need to be added to the right groups so
they could see private bugs. (fedora_contrib_private I think it is).
IIRC, pkgdb CC'ing all listed people onto the bugs was to allow other
package owners to see the private bugs but it's been quite a while and
I don't know what has changed in bugzilla since then.
One way to address both the "what happens if I take ownership of a
bug, which removes the packagename-owner(a)fp.o alias?" and the "I don't
want to get bugzilla email to both the packagename-owner(a)fp.o and CC
list email" concerns would be to use a /dev/null'd address for the
initial owner field. ie: bug report is initially assigned to
packagename-null(a)fp.o and all the maintainers are placed into the CC
