Assign to "Anonymous" doesn't make much sense
|Assignee:||Jean-Philippe Lang||% Done:|
Issues might be created by "Anonymous" (most prominent example would be via email). The author is added to the list of assignable users, which doesn't make much sense.
I will provide a patch to not add the author to the list of assignable users if the author is anonymous.

What is the rationale for always adding a (non-anonymous, non-locked) author to the assignable users list? I was caught by surprise on this behavior, since if the author is a member of a non-assignable role I would not expect to find them on the assignable users list, yet they are still included. I want to disable this behavior but want to first make sure I'm not missing an obvious reason why this is being done.
My scenario is that all of our staff can use Redmine to submit tasks/requests to a certain small team we have which is responsible for handling those tasks, but only the team members themselves should be able to be assigned issues. It's confusing to those team members to also see the author on the list of assignable users every time, and they've asked me if I can change that behavior. Seems like a trivial edit to the model but want to make sure I don't inadvertently break something.
