ChiliProject is not maintained anymore. Please be advised that there will be no more updates.
We do not recommend that you setup new ChiliProject instances and we urge all existing users to migrate their data to a maintained system, e.g. Redmine. We will provide a migration script later. In the meantime, you can use the instructions by Christian Daehn.
"Add watcher" option lists all defined users instead of project members (Bug #1073)
When creating an issue, I can specify the watchers right from the creation screen.
That list is OK, only project members are listed.
Once the issue is created, I can manage watchers from the left column.
From there, everyone is listed --> only the project members should be listed.

I see. But IMO, as users not member of a project can't see the issues of that project, having them available as watchers is non-sense... unless I missed something? :)
Mmh, actually you are right, I always thought it was limited to the users that could have watched the object on their ownâ€¦ Have you tried if everyone gets sent notifications even if they're not on the project (can't remember if it gets checked)?
Writing this answer made me realize something else though, being that adding an email address as a watcher was something planned to come later, in which case there's no enforcing of "visibility" possible.
To sum up: I'm not sure what the best/intended behavior is/was ^_^" But that's something that should further be discussed for sure.
In my case, I use ChiliProject as a tracking system for many client projects. In this case, because the list of watchers is not project specific, I've got a list of potential watchers who have nothing to do with a given project; they are completely different clients.
