In many sites, posts are associated with an “avatar”, a small image chosen by the user to represent his online presence.
We could implement the same feature, targetting primarily the bugnotes, where such images will not waste space
The implemented code is based on the http://gravatar.com web service. In order to show the personal avatar, users should register with the service using the same e-mail address stored in mantis.
NOTE: after the initial registration (or after changing the gravatar icon) there is often a delay before the avatar is correctly shown on mantis. More informations in the gravatar blog
The feature is controlled by the $g_show_avatar configuration variable and right now defaults to OFF
Add a local storage for avatars, so that users can opt to upload the avatar directly in mantis.
This is probably something to add on the user preference page
