Invite Feature for projects
We needed a Solution to get all users on the system the option to invite yourself to other projects. This reduced the administrative overhead on our system. The project manager(s) of a project now don't manually search and add the users who want access to a specific project.
The workflow is as follow:
1. User klicks on a public project and want to "join".
2. He/She klicks on the "Send authorization request" link on the upper right.
3. All project managers on this project gets a email with certain links in it. Each link will add the user with a role to this project. (Example: If the project manager klicks on the "Add as supporter" link, the user will be added as a supporter to this project)
This Feature is on a production environment with ~200 users and works well.
It would be great if this will get in the main trunk because other user requested this feature also.

Sorry, this patch is created on the 0.9.4 tag. You can try to apply it to the current trunk, but I don't give any guaranty that it works. The most part of the patch are translations and the method to send the email. You can give it a try and if it fails, its no big deal to fix the patch :)

I am asking me how a user can reach a projects overview page on which he has no rights to join the project as role with rights?
Typically i wanna join a project i only know the name and maybe description.
If you don't have public projects mnanagment you can 't use this patch.
Is this correct?
Iinstead of core featureu can write a plugin. E.G check the Blocks layout plugin to see how view hooks are used.
