Description

Hi,

I know this is probably trivial, but...for some reason, my home project
on OBS has an upper case spelling of my username "homoe:Golanv",
instead of my prefered "home:golanv". I can use either variation to
log in. Is there anyone I can contact to get this set to an all lower-
case version of my username in all cases (including my home project)?

Also, on OBS, under the "Create Project" page, there is a suggetion to
send emails to noreply@opensuse.org if a project outside the home
project (or a home project with a different name) is needed. This is
probably a mistake, since noreply@opensuse.org bounces back.

Thanks!

I can see that the "Golanv" username appears in our authentication backend and we might be able to change it to lower-case, but it might happen that other openSUSE services use case-sensitive usernames and then you could be locked out of these.

We can just try it and revert if it does not work. OK?

#4 Updated by aaron@adelie.io about 2 months ago

That sound good to me. Please proceed!

Thanks!

I updated the uid LDAP field to golanv - please test.

#6 Updated by aaron@adelie.io about 2 months ago

That looks like it did the trick! Thanks a lot! I know this is a very small
issue. I really appreciate you taking the time to make this change.

Thanks.
