We are starting to get pretty close to releasing Manila 9.6 and have just a few more features / issues we would like to address. One often requested feature is to be able to have site members whose user names are not email addresses. This is particularly important for our K-12 educational users. Often kids in the lower grades don't have email accounts or there are specific reasons why their email address can't be provided. This requires a bit of work to make sure we avoid duplicates and provide choices in the event a user name is already in use.
