At Mageia, LDAP is used to ensure there is a single sign on for everything. People know eachothers userid, but not always their email address, nor their name. User matching is setup, but as we often only know a userid, it is pretty difficult to understand how to assign a bug to someone. IMO, the user matching in Bugzilla/User.pm (sub match), should be modified to match profiles.extern_id as well. If agreed, I can write a patch to implement. Note: I don't have an LDAP setup myself :-(
Patch in bug 51188 does exactly what I wanted...
