I'm packaging a Magento extension to be submitted to the Magento Connect.

I'm having one confusion though. What should I set the User field to in Authors section ? enter image description here

The guidelines doc says that Package using “User Name” not “Screen Name” or the upload will result in an error.

Now my confusion is that what it is the username they are referring to ? Is it the First Name + Last name as in the screenshot below ?

enter image description here

  • There is no relation with account information as per my knowledge

  • The doc says ... The first user must match the user name of your magentocommerce.com account used to display your extensions on Magento Connect.

Here's what I've been doing forever and never have an issue with this setup:

  • In the Authors, the Name field must match the Magento Connect account Screen Name defined in the Developer Profile
  • The User field can be whatever you want it is not related to Magento Connect.
  • The Email field is the email defined in Magento Connect Account Information.
