Allows reporting tickets with a different username

Notice: This plugin does not necessarily meet coding standards or functions correctly in all use cases.


Since Trac 0.10 there was no mechanism to rename the value in the Reporter field when entering tickets. This plugin does allows this. Beware that this does no checking on the username given (which is part of the reason this feature was removed from Trac itself).

Make sure the user entering the ticket has the TICKET_FAKE_USERNAME permission or TICKET_ADMIN.
