There are two contributors to OpenCog called 'Linas Vepstas' -- they're both me. I'd like to alias them together, but cannot, because 'Linas Vepstas' is not listed in the possible aliases list.
That is, I am https://www.ohloh.net/p/opencog/contributors/64860448631660
but I am also https://www.ohloh.net/accounts/linas
When I click on "I am this person" on the first URL, I get a pair of pull-down menus, and my name does not appear on the first pull-down .. and so I cannot alias! I presume that this bug occurs because both contributors have exactly the same spelling.
Sorry about the confusion; we've been meaning to fix this part of our UI for a while and haven't gotten to it.
I fixed up the problem for you. Two things were causing trouble:
There's now a new report and your contributions were merged.
Thanks, I guess I'd set up aliases first, then added manager positions, then .. clicking through the various links and setup became very circular after a while, and confusing.
