Autocomplete user fields (assigned to and CC) on tickets

Description

This plugin allows autocompletion of users for the owner, reporter and CC fields on new and existing tickets. Currently, all the known users are autocompleted, though this could be restricted to those that have the ticket owner permission.

In addition to fields on new and existing tickets, the following fields are also autocompleted:

  • User and group fields on the admin Permissions page.
  • Ticket custom fields.
  • User field on the admin Components page (forthcoming).

Note: Email addresses shown by this plugin are handled according to the setting trac.show_email_addresses and the permission EMAIL_VIEW. That is, if trac.show_email_addresses is set to false and the current user doesn't have the permission EMAIL_VIEW, then all mail addresses will be obfuscated as usual in Trac. That is, email addresses will be displayed as donjaun@... rather than donjaun@example.com. In all other cases the full email address is visible.

This autocomplete feature is implemented using AJAX. A /subjects URL is served which presents the users and/or groups in a format suitable for the jQuery Autocompleter. The plugin should gracefully degrade when JavaScript is disabled.
