Display the real name in addition to the Launchpad name

Bug Description

Currently, the LoCo Directory displays the Launchpad name of the administrators and owner of each LoCo's Launchpad team. Besides displaying the Launchpad name, the directory should also display the real name. Since LoCos meet up in real life, many people only know their fellow LoCo members by their real name and not their Launchpad name.

As an update, any place in the LoCo Directory that displays a Launchpad username should also display the real name.

As an update any place that the username/LP name is displayed it should also be a hyperlink to their LP profile. ;-p (This seems way more simple then getting the real name out of LP, since this doesn't require api calls, and caching considerations)

Sorry I just noticed that my request is already mentioned in another LP bug #540532

I wonder if it would be better to pull this info from the new "profile" that we want to allow in the LoCo Directory instead of from LP.

Daniel Holbach (dholbach) wrote :

LP, because that way people only need to input it once. :)

This is going to be a bit more complicated. team.owner needs to be transitioned from just a TextField with the launchpad id to a TeamAdministrator or a new Person ForeignKey.
