Allow users to log in to bugs.python.org/issues.roundup-tracker.org with their email 
address in the username field. Currently, this fails with an "Invalid login" error.

I am not clear what is wanted here. You can change your
login name to your email address if you want this.

What is the use case for allowing multiple login names?

As you require the creation of a username separate from the email address, which is 
different from most other websites, it follows that users will attempt to log in with 
their email address.

WordPress, which requires usernames, lets users log in via both email address and 
username.

This would be a easy fix ( where USERNAME = <blah> OR EMAIL_ADDRESS = <blah>), 
a usability improvement, and a reduction in support time/costs.

Ok fair enough. Also I believe that you can use your email address as
your login name (or change your login name to one of your email
addresses).

However if you do so, you will probably be exposing your email in the
web interface where the username usually shows up. I don't think we
obscure email addresses in that position.

Also I assume you mean only the primary email address (which is used
to send email to the user) and not any additional addresses (which are
used to receive emails and map them to the user).

This would go in the core login code and would need to be controllable
by the tracker admin. I would be in favor of having a patch that
implemented this included in the core code.

Since this is not a bug, I am changing type to RFE (request for
enhancement). Also marking as possible gsoc and I think effort level
should be low.
