Currently, in admin interface, only FAS account name is shown and it could lead to mistakes (aka bad fas -> nickname mapping for July 2014 FESCo election). There's no way how to check it before elections starts and it happens automatically in the night...
Two options how to fix it - show real name when FAS is added or implement elections preview. Implementation of both would be even better :).
Two things are present in git for this atm:
the about page is present in the front page and the open page (unlike now) and the about page will show the real name
when adding new candidate and the election is set to integrate with FAS, the username is checked to correspond to a FAS user (note: this does not prevent an incorrect mapping if both users exist in FAS)
However, I won't be making a new release before the current election ends :)
That's actually not true, to fix a problem in the login mechanism I'll be pushing out 2.3 soon and 2.3 contains the two changes listed above.
I think this is fixed now :)
