ChangeLog: Author name shows up as "John Doe" if preferences field not modified
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:04:59 EDT
Description of problem: If you don't modify the Author name field in
the ChangeLog Preferences (ie. I left mine as "handcock" by default),
the author actually shows up as "John Doe" in an
automatically-generated ChangeLog entry. This may be applicable to
other ChangeLog Preferences as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Clean out your prefernce store
2. Don't change the Author field in the ChangeLog preferences
3. Create a new ChangeLog entry in some source file
Actual results: Author name is shown as "John Doe"
Expected results: The author name should have been saved in the
preference store as "handcock", as it initially appeared in the
ChangeLog Preferences dialog.
