PrivateTicketsPlugin is case sensitive for username

Reported by: Steven R. Loomis Owned by: Noah Kantrowitz
Priority: normal Component: PrivateTicketsPlugin
Severity: major Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


We use e-mail addresses as usernames. It seems that the plugin is case sensitive, so if the owner name is 'Mark@…' but they authenticate as 'mark@…', this plugin won't let them see the ticket.

I think the plugin should be case insensitive.

Summary: PrivateTicketsPlugin is case sensitivePrivateTicketsPlugin is case sensitive for username

Case-sensitivity should be an option for the plugin.

There is a Trac option ignore_auth_case (in the [trac] section of trac.ini). By default it is false. It appears that your authentication mechanism is case insensitive, but Trac is set to be case sensitive.
