FS#2029 - possibility to let a user describe himself

This could be done by a textarea field (like comment text or task description) on the myprofile page and stored in a new field (of type text for instance) in the user table.

This allows the user to introduce himself to the other users.

Should be restrictive, for instance only simple text allowed, no html or tags.

Project Manager

This field could also be used during user registration as additional spam prevention with config that an admin must approve a registration. In combination with customizable labels what a user should enter there like 'Why do you want to register?' or an unspecific 'Who won yesterday?' in combination with a flyspray install dedicated to a niche interest group. That way an admin can get a better feeling who must decide if there is a real user registration or just an adspambot tries to regiter to put spam at every reachable site.

new table column

{users}.bio TEXT
{prefs}.pref_value='why? :-)' TEXT

Current obstacle: Either email confirmationcode OR admin approval, not usable together.
To overcome this, a new table column

{registration}.bio TEXT 

is required and some reworks of and templates common.newuser.tpl and

Raised priority.
