Description

When dealing with regressions, it turns out to be somewhat difficult for one developer to see all their regressions in a list.

Usually when QA finds and bibisects a regression, they add a comment saying "Adding CC to: Jane Doe" and add the developer to CC. Filtering for such is possible, but unreliable. Sometimes the bibisect is a false positive, but since comments cannot be edited, the "Adding CC to:" keeps the bug in the filter results.
Sometimes this commment is missing, although the bug was properly bibisected to be a regression.
Recently I tried to make lists of all regressions by all our developers and ran into the above issues.

To make searching for "regressions by someone" more reliable I'd like to propose adding a new field to bug pages, named "Regression By" (or something similar). This would be an email type field, that could be added to regression bugs.
