The following describes the policy for information controlled by the

It appears to me that the IRC nickname if provided in FAS is also
treated as public information in various places now regardless of the
privacy settings. If I log into FAS and look at another user who has
the privacy flag set I can see the IRC nickname, if I query the fas
plugin to zodbot I also see the user's IRC nickname.
I do think the IRC nickname should be considered public information if
provided (and especially for users with fedora cloaks) so I'm
exception along with the email address listed in the current policy?
This makes sense. We probably should also ask the Board (and Community)
at the same time, since we have to make a big noise every time we change
it (even for a minor change like this).
I also have a question about what the "your affiliations"
in the last
bullet in that section refers to?
At one point, there was a plan to extend FAS to show external
"affiliations", but I don't think it ever happened. Toshio would know
more, but he's off at PyCon atm.
