      Description

      To replicate:

      1) Add Forums to a course/project site
      2) Create a forum, topic, and post a new thread
      3) Notice the "Authored By" field (e.g.,: "Sakai Administrator (admin)")

      4) Now alter the first name, last name, or eid of your user account.
      5) Go back to Forums, notice the Authored By data has not changed

      The problem:

      Users routinely have name mis-spellings corrected and changed. Users can also have their eid changed during the course of enrollment at an institution (marriage, divorce, etc). With the current behavior in Forums, the only way to "fix" the "Authored By" in a forum, is editing directly in a DB.

      As far as I know, this is the only tool that saves the fullname + eid instead of consulting the UserDirectoryProvider for the authoritative answer.
