A good idea might be to add an option `<<author>>` to 'assignee' select for issues.

a interesting feature will be assign to a project by author, so I can use email-import to create issue from one email address and automatically assign to right project

It could be implemented as an option in the project settings "default asignee". Currently one can already select <<Me>> there, however, it resolves to my name instead of the respective issue creator.

I want the ticket assignee to be able to select "ticket author".

After processing the ticket, we ask the ticket creator to check the operation and close the ticket.
It is necessary to change the assignee of the ticket to the ticket author.
If the number of participants in the project is large, the task of selecting the person in charge is troublesome and can be mistaken.

I applied the patch in my test environment.
The screen looks like this.

Below is a patch code based on Redmine 4.2
If it is helpful for you, then I think it is good.
