Improvement #862

Support user first and last name in requests

Right now if you need to specidy user for some context you need to enter the username or Jabber ID... This is not very friendly...

The idea is to support queries like:

User: Assign to Andriy Lesyuk
User: Assign to Kostyantyn
User: Assign to Sergiy F.
User: Assign to Dmytriv

The algorithm should be smart enough to determine who is this user... For example, if user tells “Andriy” Orangutan should claim that there are many Andriy’s. If user tells “Kostyantyn” Orangutan should use Kostyantyn Kornienko because he is the only Kostyantyn etc.

I guess this can be done using filter...

On same_login setups this issue becomes more important because user can specify the following:
  • jabber username or jabber id (this will be default);
  • first name and/or last name;
  • redmine login (currently unsupported).
