#1150 closed defect (fixed)

Remove username case-sensitivity requirement when adding committer to plugin

Description

When adding a committer to a plugin on the plugin Admin screen, using the improper username case (e.g., kristineds instead of KristineDS) and clicking "Add Committer" results in the page simply refreshing with ?error=no-user appended to the URL.

we should just try to find those places where case matters and make it not matter. That should be fixable on that admin screen

After testing, it appears this field already ignores case for usernames. I was able to add my test user named "Notto" using "NOTTO", "nOtTo" and "notto" with no issues.

Upon attempting to add "kristineds" I did encounter a problem. Seems to be a caching issue. I've adjusted the plugin add-committer code to correct the cache issue.
