Target version:-


I would like a functionality to change the owner
(creator) of an issue.

It would be neat if this functionality had its own
permisson flag instead of being part of the "Edit Issue".
Otherwise just include it in the "Edit Issue".

In many situations you create an issue on behalf of
another and it would be neat if you could set the ownership
to be the person whom you are creating it on behalf of.

Currently, I do it by changing the data directly
in the database... :-/

BTW I have made a similar functionality in a customized
version of Bugzilla and that functionality is very often
used and really nice to have.
