Add "Assign to me" shortcut to issue edit form
|Assignee:||Go MAEDA||% Done:|
I would like to add an "Assign to me" link next to the "Assignee" field which can be used to set the current user as assignee. There are a lot of cases when I edit an issue and I want to assign the issue to me. Using this shortcut, we save one click without any side effect.
1 I'm using this feature in GitLab and from there the idea.

Do users really need "Assign to me" link as well?
I would prefer "Assign to me" as button outside of edit mode. Right now you need 4 clicks to assign issue to yourself. This patch reduces this to 3 click, which is still quite a lot for such simple change. Quite often the only change you want to make is to assign issue to yourself, and having one-click button for this would be quite useful. It would be even better if you could combine it with status change, for example "Start" button which will assign issue to user and change issue status to "in progress".

Fantastic stuff with the 'Assign to me' button.
I do have one suggestion, please correctly if I am wrong.
Would it be better to have the button next to the 'Edit' button? (see attached screen)
The reason why I think this would make more sense if, that if you are reading the description of the issue and what to take ownership of it, you would have to use just one click to do so, in comparison if you need to click edit first then clicking a button next to the active list Assignee is exactly the same as just choosing yourself from the drop down list.
