Summary0003378: Change mentions of WubTheCaptain's first name to Linda
DescriptionAs part of my social transitioning or "real-life experience" of being a trans woman, I may need to confirm wanting to live in my affirmed gender for the rest of my life. Doomseeker makes references to my (alias WubTheCaptain) "deadname", a name that is no longer in use in social contexts.

I've been "out" (out of the closet) to my closest friends since some four years ago, and living as a "full-time" trans woman since late December 2017.

At the time of this writing, I have the ICD-10 F64.9 "gender identity disorder, unspecified" (NOS) diagnosis. (I'm waiting to be examined by a medical team for confirmation of ICD-10 F64.0 diagnosis, starting in April 2018. As an ongoing process, this ticket will also get me a head start in the "RLE" period of my transitioning.)

I wish this community and the Doomseeker software would refer to me as Linda from now on (in social contexts), when referring to me by my first name. This would alleviate my gender dysphoria. "Wub", "WubTheCaptain" and other Internet nicknames still remain valid, of course.
Steps To Reproduce

  • In source, media/SOURCES.txt lists me as the author for icons/buddies.png, since Doomseeker 1.2-beta.
  • Help → About dialog in Doomseeker lists my name as an additional contributor since version 1.2-beta.
Additional InformationCoincidentally my name doesn't appear in Doomseeker 1.1, so this also seems like a perfect time for me to change the mention of my name in the software for the upcoming Doomseeker 1.2 release than "too late".

Historical commits with my previous author name (the "deadname") need not to be corrected or changed ("overwritten"?).

Trivia: My GitHub account's name has been "Linda Heartstone" at least since 2014, but I've since dropped the idea of changing my last name.

Where legally significant (copyrights), until this name change has been juridically confirmed I must regrettably use my "deadname". I expect this juridical confirmation of my name change to happen in early 2019, once the new name law in Finland comes into force. (There's currently both financial and 3–9 months (!) processing time reasons delaying juridical confirmation, versus 2–4 weeks and no cost with the new law in 2019). The "deadname" may appear in version control as the "author" (like this commit) or author lists, but I will be switching over to using "Linda" there without notice for future contributions once this has been juridically confirmed.

I got asked on IRC why the names in Doomseeker were the way they were.

Commit 052ae8550e16f9aa1f7164ad3c77d70610371880 author was set to my name, although the media/SOURCES.txt and commit description was done by Zalewa to my knowledge. (The media icon itself was from me.)

The original about dialog was again by Zalewa, commits a3e03ffe68f2a061fb6a6650532539f229d14ec0 and 7402dd098db5793a052fe9430137f0155e5bae98.
