Bug Description

The work items tracker should show LP realnames instead of LP nicks in all general listings. This would improve the readability of these listings. Additionally, the LP nick could be shown in the link title-tag (shown on hover).

Note that this is not a request to add a "userpage" for every LP user, but simply to get the realname for everybody in the tracker.

As per our discussion, this will require a change to where all real names be pulled from LP in order to work instead of just people who belong to tracked teams.

Changed in launchpad-work-items-tracker:
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
status: New → Confirmed

Even though this is an interesting request.

Given the fact not ever "everybody" has the serious wish/need to have his real-name displayed the option to enter a "nick" seems to have been a very thoughtful & sensible decision in the 1st place.

Reverting the users choice would (in these days) break a users choice for privacy matters.

Actually there is an option once a LP-user is considered to appear with his real identity (covering both fields), it's possible to create a new account and merge it with the old account.

Having this in place I would tend to rather mark this bug-report as "opinion"
