Description

The attached patch changes the default Gravatar icon from "none" to "Identicions".

Currently, if "Use Gravatar user icons" setting is enabled and "Default Gravatar image" setting has not been changed, the default "G" icon is used for every user who has not registered their icon on Gravatar. But I think it is inconvenient because you cannot distinguish a user by seeing icon.

To resolve this, I suggest changing the default value for "Default Gravatar image" from "none" to another value. When the value is other than "none", different icons are automatically generated for users who have not registered their Gravatar icon. As a result, you can easily distinguish users.

There are 6 options for the setting. I think "Identicons" is the best for the new default. It is because the design of Identicons icons is neutral and not childish, so, acceptable for many people.

The attached patch changes the default setting for newly installed Redmine instances.
