#9167 closed enhancement (fixed)

Timeline filtering by author ("done by") is case sensitive

I would have expected filtering by author to be case insensitive (but then I am a windows user :) ).

Generally you know your own username - but may not know the exact usernames of other people. for this reason I think loosening the restriction for an exact match to be a good idea.

Patch to make "done by" Timeline filtering case insensitive

I don't know. I'm not a big user of that feature, so I'm rather neutral to the suggestion (and I'm a Linux user :). The patch looks good, so it's a simple matter of deciding.

What do others think?

I'm fine with the proposed change. If later we move on to using full names instead of login names (#7339), filtering in a case insensitive will be even more user friendly (though I hope there's no one relying on being able to differentiate two users joe and Joe ;-) ).

Slightly simplified patch (yes, it is possible to simplify a 3-line patch :) applied in [9399]. Thanks!
