Additional: If you change your Display Name here:

Then that will get picked up and used instead of "pmenard" for the name in
the sidebar on plugin pages, even if you use "pmenard" as the Contributors

Look in the sidebar under Author. Has my full name. But the readme.txt has

Contributors: Otto42

Which is my username.

become the single place to control info about your w.org account.
