Using BulkRegistration, new user topics in Main do not get the email address added to the topic.

For example, given the following UnprocessedUsers table:

FirstName LastName Email WikiName
Test User1 user1@junkNOSPAM.com TestUser1
Test User2 user1@junkNOSPAM.com TestUser2

and running BulkRegistration

  • pages are created for Main.TestUser1 and TestUser2

  • First and Last name fields are correctly updated

  • Email field is empty

My guess is that this is due to the following code in lib/TWiki/UI/Register.pm

# Keys from the user data that should *not* be included in
# the user topic.
my %SKIPKEYS = (
    Photo                   => 1,
    WikiName                => 1,
    LoginName               => 1,
    Password                => 1,
    Email                   => 1,
    SystemGeneratedPassword => 1,
    MustChangePassword      => 1

which seems to be actively not copying over the Email.

I don't understand is the rationale for not copying the email address to a form that specifically has a place for the email address.
