Anonymous Authors plug-in:
  • Allows to the anonymous user to enter his name and e-mail address when adding an issue;
  • Allows to the anonymous user to enter his name and e-mail address when adding a note to the issue;
  • Displays the entered name and e-mail address anywhere in Redmine instead of "Anonymous";
  • Notifies the author of anonymously created issue when it is updated. You can add a note to the issue and author will get the notification as a normal user;
  • When Redmine is set up to create issues from mails, it uses the name and e-mail address from "From" header of the received mail;
  • Allows to filter issues by the author's name and author's e-mail address (including anonymous authors);

Recommended to use together with Anonymous Watchers plug-in

this is a great plugin, but sadly not working with 3.2.0.
Will there be an update to support 3.x+ ?
