While "People" View provides some interesting functionality, currently its
purpose and intent is unclear for new users, confusing them.

From Vladimir:
"I was wondering about it for a while too. Definitely, some description
needs to be there (or some other usability trick).

But as soon as my projects started to be built when new source changes
were detected, that empty page started to fill up with engineer names
who performed the changes. Actually, the page is pretty useful, you
could see what changes engineers did and in which builds they are
(changes, not engineers) present.

Also, for every engineer a separate Page is created where said engineer
could adjust his e-mail address, and then (I guess) that address could
be used to send notifications to the engineer when his changes break
the build.

So, the features are pretty cool, just not very easily discoverable."

From Kohsuke:
"Indeed. I guess I can either hide the link until there's some
information in that page, or generate a text until the first user
appears (kinda like how we have 'welcome' page) and link to a documentation."
