Well, we cannot force people to give their "real" name if they don't
want to. Everyone is free to choose and everyone can have his own
reasons. Refusing to give credits or to add someone to the contributors
list cause he prefers to not give his real name will not give a positive
image of the project.
On the other hand, what are we calling a "real name"? Something that
looks like a "person name"? It can be a fake...
