Description

When we first went to trac we had restrictions on the 'owner' to developers only. When track was upgraded this broke completely but all the code to handle this was already in place.

I took the time to fix it today so we have dropdowns again.

I've created this ticket to see if anyone has an issue with this should we keep it? Drop it? I know it's been years but it was our original choice.

See any ticket the 'reassign to' and on a new ticket the 'assign to' is now a dropdown. These are based on trac permissions so we can always add more if we need it but it really should be restricted to having a project member be the owner so we can ensure tickets are closed and sorted properly.

I'm not sure what this changes so don't have an opinion yet. If it sucks, I am sure someone will complain. Lol

With this we lose the ability to set the owner to the "Needs Funding" category to indicate that no developer is willing to be responsible for it.

Look at these two pages:

https://devel.rtems.org/newticket
https://devel.rtems.org/ticket/3560

Check the "assign" and "assign to" or "ressign-to" fields it is now a restricted dropdown. It used to be like this years ago.

Based on feedback I am closing this it can always be re-opened if there are any issues.
