Users with emails on the .cc domain is not allowed to register.
Are you sure the mail adress is the problem? On my personal test machine I just
created an account with that mail adress using CVS HEAD software. On
de.wikipedia it works too.
As the mail adress is optional, I guess that the problem could really be the
user name. What error message do you get for what account name and on which
MediaWiki installation (+version)?
the bug is on mediazilla (bugzilla), not mediawiki.

In which case, isn't it likely to be "not our problem" - something to report on
Bugzilla's own Bugzilla at http://bugzilla.mozilla.org ?
Maybe there is a blacklist in bugzilla ?
Hm... I decided to test this to see what the actual response was. I logged out,
asked for an account for "firstname.lastname@example.org" and got this message:
A new account, email@example.com, has been created and a randomly-generated password
has been e-mailed to that address.
In fact, requesting an account for firstname.lastname@example.org gave me:
A MediaZilla account for email@example.com already exists. If you are the account
holder and have forgotten your password, [submit a request to change it].
I'm thus extremely tempted to mark this bug "WORKSFORME"; can the original
reporter confirm what exactly happened when they tried, and why they came to the
conclusion that it was the .cc that was the problem?
Hi. I believe the problem has been fixed now.. It was a problem back then.. so
I had to register using firstname.lastname@example.org, but it seems fixed now.
