Merge branch 'rs-issue-15126' into 'master'

Remove persistent XSS vulnerability in `commit_person_link` helper

Because we were incorrectly supplying the tooltip title as
`data-original-title` (which Bootstrap's Tooltip JS automatically
applies based on the `title` attribute; we should never be setting it
directly), the value was being passed through as-is.

Instead, we should be supplying the normal `title` attribute and letting
Rails escape the value, which also negates the need for us to call
`sanitize` on it.
