            Bug ID: 379064
           Summary: identity.kde.org fails if names have 2 letters only -
                    "burns" addresses
           Product: www.kde.org
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: kde-www at kde.org
          Reporter: fox at ffoxfire.33mail.com
  Target Milestone: ---

https://identity.kde.org does not handle all errors properly.

If you register an identity and use a name with 2 letters, such as:

1st. name: Ab
2nd. name: Cd

Then upon confirmation on https://identity.kde.org there will be breakage.

The "name" drop-down-list (tested on Mint-distro's firefox) will be empty and
it will be impossible to continue to finalize the ID registration procedure.
The e-mail address is "burned" (admin interference required to reuse it). The
identity created cannot be used at all. No error message is given at all.

Using a longer name such as "Abcde Fghij" will succeed of course.

Fix: Just exempt the user from entering names which are too short or treat
2-letter-names properly in the website's html/JS code.
