## same nickame, *different* email address because *different* user:
This specific case is really the one that is difficult to solve, as if
FAS user registered nickname, and ACO/different person had same nickname
in ACO, there is no way to import your user automatically, because of
the nickname conflict .
One possibility was to then import user with a prefix but we thought
that it would be better to let ACO users in such case (normally you
*should* have received during STG tests a mail about this) chose
themselves a new nickname.
So the solution for non imported users will be to then "register" (you
can already do that through https://accounts.fedoraproject.org) a new
nick name and then ask your SIG chair to be sponsored in previous groups
you were members of.
Just to track such case[s], it's a good idea to still create ticket on
https://pagure.io/centos-infra/issues with nickname, and we can also
reflect the new nick in history (like for example on
https://cbs.centos.org / koji)
