Chris Thistlethwaite commented on WHIMSY-200:
---------------------------------------------

Yes, the script does need to take into account single names. However, the issue 
isn't with publication but with LDAP needing first name and last name, which I 
thought was for legal reasons. My point being, if John Smith puts in a ICLA 
with public name Jimmy Shoe, then LDAP/etc would be created using that has his 
legal name instead of the more appropriate Full Name. I haven't combed through 
LDAP and ICLAs to find out if someone has a different Full Name than Public 
Name but both are First/Last names, so I have no clue if this particular case 
exists.

> Public name from ICLA prioritized over Full Name

> Recently there have been a few new accounts that made their way into 
> new-account-reqs.txt that only have a single name in the full name field. 
> While there are instances where single names are appropriate, it seems that 
> if someone fills out "public name" and "full name", then "public name" gets 
> submitted as their full name. Single names cause the make-accounts.sh script 
> to fail (as LDAP is looking for first and last name).
> The work around is someone from Infra (me) has to look up their ICLA and find 
> their actual full name, edit new-account-reqs.txt, then re-run the account 
> creation script.
