Bugzilla should built user images feature for separate people, for example 
See: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=709136#c1, Tobbi have calender driver icon. if this things have for all , i mean for QA, for SUMO, for REMO, for Developer. it will be very good.
This icon shows because Tobbi is in the 'calendar-drivers' group which has the icon configured for it. Not very many groups in BMO have icons associated with them. Also not all departments you list have their own distinct groups except for REMO (Mozilla Reps). 

So we would either need to 1) create new groups for any department that wants an icon to display next to someones name, or 2) implement some new method for allow people to associate icons or pictures with their BMO account and then display it next to their name everywhere. 

There has been discussion about possibly allowing BMO and the Mozillians directory to communicate with each other which could help with both the grouping and the picture once that is implemented but I don't know what the timeframe for that currently is.

i'm not a fan of the group icons, and i think we should remove them.  see bug 726512

fwiw i'm not a fan of displaying icons/images in any form next to comments (sourced from gravitar, mozillians, where-ever).  i have concerns of the security impact of displaying externally hosted content on a bmo page.

Of course would be opposed if it proved to cause any performance/security impact on the system After your comments in bug 726512 and thinking about his some more, we should close this out and push for removal of icons/image of any kind until there is some broader demand for it and we can design something that is of great benefit and would not be a performance/security issue.

Actually it will look nice to see who are from QA, who are from SUMO etc. You guys can create new group and attach people where they contribute.but why guys you are planning to remove icon feature?
