Description

16 years ago
A change is coming that will make bug owner searches default to exact matches. 
Most names are unique without the @foo.bar portion, so changing the default to
"begins with" might alleviate performance problems without reducing the
convenience of the "contains" default.  

This recommendation is only viable if the performance of "begins with" is near
that of "is" or at least sufficiently better than "contains" to be acceptable. 
All the while that I used the default "contains" setting, I really meant "begins
with" anyway.  This might allow most people to switch to the new setup without
even knowing that anything had changed.
bbaetz: could this be done using a ^Foo regexp? And would it perform on a par
with exact match, or much worse?

We'd want to use |LIKE foo%|, which is probably more efficent. Also, since the
start of the string is fixed, the db can use an index to do the lookup.
