User management in open source projects

Is user management redundant for open source projects? I'm just trying to understand how it works. First, I invited another user to our project, she accepted, and I see her in the "set permissions for someone" list.

But then, I used another email address to just sign up without an invitation. I was able to sign up (good) and seemingly had the same level of access. But that account doesn't show up in my main account's list of "set permissions for someone".

Is this just a harmless oddity?

    Only account members on OSS projects will be able to make milestones, messages, pages and change milestone/state/other ticket details. Lighthouse user profiles are global. Anyone with a Lighthouse user profile will be able to create a ticket in an OSS project.

    Cool, thanks. (I've just verified that you can invite someone who's submitted tickets, and they then become a full member.) You may want to make that a bit clearer in the interface.
