Maybe this has been answered already, but I think the problem Charlie
has is that he actually uses Launchpad for bug tracking, and we don't
allow adding bug watches if the project use Launchpad -- a shortcoming
that comes from our rather naïve view of the project bugtracker (many
projects moving to Launchpad are in transition and as such will have
bugs in both places).

Or does it? Looking at 


it doesn't say it tracks bugs anywhere. At any rate, my last suggestion
is to organize a mass-import of NUnit's SF bugs into Launchpad and
tracking it all here.
