It's because I had just gone on a detour to create a user account. On
many sites, creating a user account isn't as quick as on this site:
after registering a username and password, a screen will be presented
asking for user details. That's what confused me. The first field I was
presented with after registering and confirming my email address and
password was a field labelled "Name".

I was definitely confused though. I managed to fill in the other,
obviously-package-specific fields, without noticing I had been filling
in the form inconsistently!
