I'm definitely missing an 'Assign to me' feature when creating a new issue.

Something I create an issue just for the sake of completeness (I use the final report as a changelog) and I love to have an easy to use option to assign the issue to me.

The patch does the following:
  1. it adds an 'Assign to Me' link next to the Assign to select box
  2. it displays the link only if the user is in the assignable list and it's logged in

Will it be included in future versions of Redmine? I've just seen how one of my colleagues added a space before his name just to be the first on "Assigned to" list. ;) So I think that "<< me >>" option as a first one would be great.

Sorry to comment on an old ticket but our organisation would also really like this feature.

There needs to be a button named something like 'snatch ticket' which immediately grabs the ticket and assigns it to you, rather than having to update the ticket and set an assignee.

There's that: http://www.redmine.org/plugins/issue_hot_buttons
But it doesn't work on Redmine 3.X.
