In some environments the user login names are cryptic since they are set by a central IT department using some number system or what else. It would be preferable to have trac display the full user names wherever possible so there is a fair chance to know who changed what.
Attached is a patch against the released version of 0.11rc2 which will display the full user names in all places which uses the Chrome.format_author function, if the user has set it in the preferences and the administrator has turned it on in the configuration. I also added the use of format_author in the assign to field of tickets, if it is configured to display a drop down list.
All existing tests run, but I did not create any new tests for this enhancement.
This patch might collide with ticket 2178.
