What does the UserId and Username mean in the Pentaho registration form?

Hello,

The UserId is the id that you would log in to the pentaho.org site with. The UserName is a display name that will show up in the forums when you post a message. We also ask for First and Last Name, so that we have the two names separated, and yes, we know this is redundant, and no, we don't like it either.

We have plans for upgrades to our web site and forum software that should alleviate this redundancy. Sorry for any inconvenience or irritation :)
