[OSGeo-Discuss] OSGeo Userid registration - Full Name and Surname ?

I'm wondering why do we ask for "Full Name" and "Surname"
in the user registration form. I find it confusing, and a
quick look at the LDAP database shows it's not just me:
about half the registered users put the "given name" in the
"Full Name" field.

Some users also have a registered "givenName" field, while
others do not.

So, which way is the correct way ?

I could improve the form by giving instructions, but I need
those instructions myself ...
