I see that I can link to redmine users, but only with their user number. Would it also be possible to refer to users by their login? Or are these non-unique?

Logins could also be digits only, so while logins and user ids are unique on their own, their might be overlap when taken together.

Thanks for answering.

But that could be fixed by using a different prefix, right?

"Maarten Brock":http://www.redmine.org/users/13899
uses user ids.

And this could point to the same user by login:

"Maarten Brock":http://www.redmine.org/logins/m.brock

Not really. They relate each other but they weren't really duplicates. :-)
I set the relation.

I have implemented support for user logins in URLs for WikiNG.

Link to user profile was committed in #4179. The following syntaxes are supported:
  • user:login
  • @login

and a new proposal was made to support also user:1.
