Feature request: "current status" indicator attached to profile
I often see some people use changes in their profile name to indicate out-of-office status:
This works well because others will see it when they @-mention in a note or assign somebody to an issue. I wonder if it would make better sense to turn this into a first class feature. This would allow us to display these statuses where they are appropriate and hide them where they are not, and we could also format the status text differently in our design.
This could work similar to the way Slack handles user statuses:
We could also adopt some sort of online/offline status that indicates when a user has been active on GitLab within the last 10 minutes (if that user hasn't disabled it)
