mediagoblin converts entered username to lower case
|Reported by:||Jonas Haraldsson||Owned by:|
mediagoblin converts entered "UserName" to lower case "username" on account creation.
This can be confusing and a source of errors when using the pump api, as other pump.io servers respect casing.

It was apparently a design decision to store usernames as lowercase in the user database. Because of that, I made a change (see ticket #938) to convert usernames to lower case when a user logs in from the web UI login form.
If mediagoblin code is changed to allow mixed-case usernames, then the change implemented as part of ticket #938 should also be reverted.
