I've noticed in a few tickets that phabricator is not assigning the project i assign. This looks to be because i just type the project name out and disregard the autocomplete. I can certainly take the extra moment to not ignore the autocomplete, but I also think phabricator should either accept my typed value or at least warn that its throwing it away.
I expect this task to be wontfixed upstream under similar reasoning to Andre's. Or maybe not, but I think such tiny details could be reported directly upstream. I propose to decline the task here.
