Bug Description

The Launchpad person page +edit shows the account name, but the regular view of that page (eg https://edge.launchpad.net/~mbp) does not.

Also, there should be a standard term for this. userid? "Name" is too vague.

The Bazaar in five minutes guide indicates you use your "Launchpad" username to access the system. Either this is an error, or it is not clear what my username actually is.

In my case my display name, what I believe my account name is, is "edA-qa", yet to get access via bazaar I needed to user the lowercase version "eda-qa".

This should be made clear in the documentation -- perhaps a sample publish link for a project, including the username, as Google Code does.

The standard term is launchpad-id, but the code and UI rarely use it.
