Description Jason Lunghusen 2007-02-01 04:32:39 UTC
I imagine this would probably a global setting for the wiki rather than a user
preference.  We're using the LDAP plugin from here:

http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/LDAP_Authentication

and I've discussed the issue here:

http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:LDAP_Authentication#Real_name_not_displayed_on_changes

Being able to have the users Real name displayed rather than being forced to use
username would help with identifying at a glance which users are updating pages.
