I'm writing scripts to check various inconsistencies in issues, and notify the authors. So I need to be able to get the author's mail through the issues REST API.

I have a patch for r4230 which seems to work.

Thanks for that, but the API issue view returning the name alongside the ID of the user is probably only an interim solution until the API is extended to support querying users too. The second problem with that is that it doesn't respect the user setting "hide my email", and might make the user's email world-readable through the API.
