Description (last modified by JuergeN) (diff)

Today more and more people are using different names than their given names. Also I want to choose, if the diplayed name of a person is only the first name, or first name and last name.

According to the LDAP class object inetOrgPerson http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2798.html I would suggest an additional TopicType? "Display Name" as part of the composite Person. Its default value can always be fist name and last name e.g.:

First Name = Horst
Last Name = Hammer
Display Name = Horst Hammer (default, if not changed)

It's not that easy, again. DeepaMehta is not as simple as an LDAP structure. Actually after a longer discussion with Jörg I understand that this "simple" suggestion covers three issues:

  1. How do we label topics, especially composites? => see #41
  2. A user can have a display name - meaning what name is displayed to others within the system => see #42
  3. A topic may have a different "meaning" for different people and may be displayed differently to every user (e.g. Language Müchen ~ Munic, etc.) - This is the most complicated part, which defenitely needs further discussion ...
