Description

The attached patch adds badges to issue journal, news comments, and forum replies that indicate if the post is made by the author or the assignee.

I got the idea for this feature from Bugzilla and found it useful.

The issue is added by John Smith, and the current assignee is Dave Lopper.

The idea is nice. But what if the assignee changes? I personally would find the "jumping" "Assignee" badge confusing. Marking all previous assignees as "Assignee" would also look weird. An alternative solution would be to introduce another badge, smth like "Ex-assignee", but that'd produce too much info..

Maybe a separate badge for the assigned person isn't needed at all, since their avatar is already shown together with the author's. So, their status is kind of emphasized already.

Thank you for your feedback. I have updated the patch and dropped "Assignee" badge. Further feedbacks welcome.
