Adding this should be relatively easy -- the new field must be added
to the schema and a few extra lines in the templates should be added
as well to allow users to add/edit/see it.  Testing it is a bit more
difficult though.
For the API, we can add a temporary page to retrieve the git user name
as json or wait until I finish reviewing and merging the REST API
patch (any help on this is more than welcome).
I'm trying to set up a docker container with a test instance of the
tracker and create a few test issues/users, so that I can test things
more conveniently.  It might also be useful to make a psf account on
dockerhub (or somewhere else) where to keep this and possibly other
