Unless I'm reading the patch wrong it does not check if the new
message is another initial message or is just a regular reply by the
issue creator (after someone else wrote something and changed the
status back to unread)

I really like that, though I'd recommend "users" instead of
"peeople", because users is what Roundup knows about:


>   chatting_status_on_second_user_update

-1 on that

+1 for Fred ;-)

An alternative could be to include the value in the "sentence",
something like:

# Options for
# Automatically set an issue with the current status "unread" to
# "chatting" if a new message is added.
# Possible settings:
#   never:
#     Disable this feature
#   always:
#     Do this for any message
#   others:
#     Do this only if users other than the initial creator of the
#     issue send a reply
#   assignedto:
#     Do this only if the user who is listed in the assignedto
#     attribute of the issue replies
auto_chatting = {never,always,others,assignedto}
