What's the convention for "affects me too" on Red Hat's bugzilla?

In Ubuntu's Launchpad bug tracker, there's a link for "This bug affects XX people. Does this bug affect you?" There doesn't appear to be an equivalent in the RH bug tracker, though you can opt to be cc'ed on future bug updates.

Is there any other convention for saying, affects me too?

I'd just add yourself to the CC list unless you think you can add any information to help get the bug solved.

Bugzilla has a preference for if you wish emails when people just CC, and some folks will turn that off to filter out emails, so it's polite to just add to CC normally.

Sometimes people will post they are affected by a bug, more often they will simply subscribe (cc) if interested.
