what does 'involvedUser' mean ?

The javadoc of TaskQuery.involvedUser says

/** Only select tasks for which there exist an {@link IdentityLink} with the given user */

but what does that really mean ? As an API user you would normally not deal with identity links so the description is kind of technical and means not much to me, unless i drill down to the identitylink javadoc which is not that helpful either to understand. Can someone just in plain terms say what 'involvedUser' means, something like  candidateUser + member of candidateGroup + assigned tasks ?
