P4DTI issue job000838

TitleP4DTI can't replicate 'user' fields.
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionSome Bugzilla fields (e.g. 'reporter' 'qa_contact') are user identifiers, which should be replicated as Perforce user names. If the P4DTI 2.1.0 replicator is set to replicate one of these, it fails on startup with the message "NameError: global name 'user_name_length' is not defined".
AnalysisRewriting configure_bugzilla.py for the configurable jobspec requirements of P4DTI 2.1 included refactoring the code which constructs Perforce job field specifications. Some parameters required by this code for user-type fields were not passed into the refactored function, which then fails with the specified message.
