Emails display comments to groups which have them disabled

As the subject says... I have a group that cannot view comments on the project level. If someone on that group gets an email - i.e. a status update - the comments are displayed. It looks like the system is hard coded to include description, comments and details regardless of permissions.

If you change the status of a project it will record it as a comment as part of the audit trail. Also all people assigned to the project are notified of the status change.

That is not the same as adding a manual comment.

Yes, I understand that. My problem is, I have a user group that's set to have no visibility for comments. This works on the site - they can't see project comments at all. However, if members of that group are part of the project team, they'll also receive email notifications if a project status has changed. In that email, all of the comments are listed.

You are saying when you close a project, everyone on the team is sent an email with very project comment ever made included in it?

OK I checked this and it looks like if is an issue.

If you change the status of a project by editing it (not via a comment) then everyone is sent the email showing the status change and if you have the system set to show "x" prior comments it will include the "x" comments.

This does not happen if you use the comment to change the status.

Can you confirm this?

Correct. This is because there is logic in the "projectsComments" module that checks their permissions before adding in comments to the notification email, but that logic is not there in the "projects" module.
