question about "assign to first member of role"

For the post function of assigning an issue to the first member of a given role, how do we do this is the person in question is not the first person alphabetically? When adding people to role assignments, the list is sorted alphabetically and cannot seem to be altered.

There is no defined sequence for roles in datetime order. As a workaround I would propose to create a separate role with one member and add first member to that role.

Then what is the purpose of the script for "assign to the first member of the <x> role"? I was under the impression that it used the first name listed in the role (speaking in terms of order of names, not datetime of the names addition to the role).

Alexy, I used your suggested solution. It still seems like a work-around to me than an actual solution. But it works fine. Thanks!
