by default, the only way to identify the submitter of a ticket is by the optional email or "private_contact" field. it would be nice if fossil recorded the submitter's username, even if it was anonymous; fossil already puts the username in the notes field when a ticket is edited, but the original submitter is not identified anywhere in the record. if fossil can be configured to do this in the admin section, then i recommend it be the default configuration.

appended remarks identify the user, though this field can be erased before submitting the edit.

interesting - somehow the timeline knows who submitted a given ticket...

There should be an additional "submitted_by" field, which is autopopulated. On the 'new ticket' page, the email should be automatically filled in from the log-in data if the user is logged-in (as not anonymous).
