just noticed as i was signing up for the bugs system. i signed up with my full
name (Kiril Mitev) and entered km66 into the "username" field. i received
a "complete your registration" email, quote:

To complete your registration of the user "km66" with
DragonFly issue tracker, please visit the following URL:

could not login though. a password reset request later, it looks like the
system took my first name from the full name as my login:

The password has been reset for username "kiril".
Your password is now: MJAXLm6G

(i changed the password of course, thus no censoring)

not a big deal of course, but if the system swaps in a username it prefers to
use, please fix the emailer to report that username

AFAIK this is because you have sent mails to the bugs@ list. The bugtracker then
automatically creates a username for you.
