Reviewer search fails to find teammate

Issue #6519 resolved

The new reviewer feature looks neat, but I can't locate one of my team members. I've tried their full name, userid, etc and can't find the correct user.

It's a common name, so I'm guessing the search is being limited on the backend and the correct hit is dropped.

As a result, I can't assign them as a reviewer - which in my mind breaks the feature so I prioritized as major.

Suggestions: - always list exact matches for user names - prioritize teammates for repositories that are private, and/or have team ownership - limit searches for private repositories (I see this option is already a feature request)

    We do limit the results, but as you type more characters, the result shrinks and so ultimately the user must show up. If it doesn't, please raise a support request (this issue tracker is intended for feature requests) by emailing
