Currently the plugin only allows claiming a build or test for yourself. It would be very helpful to also allow assigning a build to another user. For example, when working on a team of a few people, only one of us needs to check unstable builds and then assign out builds/tests to the team members.
I've attached a patch with an initial implementation. It adds "assign" and "reassign" buttons on the UI, bringing up the same form but with an extra field for the target username. An email is sent to the assignee when he is not the user claiming the build for himself.

JENKINS-5359 Adopting "push" rather than "pull" model for claim
Whether emails are sent or not is configurable:
Go to Manage Jenkins->Configure System, then look for the 'Claim' section. There should be a check-box there "Send emails when assigning/claiming builds".
This was added to allow preservation of the previous behaviour, which is that no mail is sent if someone claimed a build failure.
Yes, thanks, it truly is.
Getting JENKINS-30765 and JENKINS-30766 would make the happiness complete.
This has been rolled out and is fantastic!
For some reason, no email is sent when assigning to someone else. Is there some configuration I'm missing for this feature? If not I will open an issue.
