I would prefer leaving the comma so one could more easily use existing user files.
1.- In most pieces of software, the semi-colon is the common list separator when using an English interface and the comma when using a French interface. Don't know about other languages.
2.- Would it not be better if the users import feature could recognize both/either comma and semi-colon as separator?
3.- Unless in some languages the comma might be part of a user's name? I doubt it.
there's one related and current issue: CONTRIB-2211
I haven't found another one (and haven't created one either).
At least German OpenOffice.org 3 uses a comma as default delimiter. And if I remember correctly that's also the case with German versions of MS Excel.
The user import feature DOES recognize the usual suspects: comma, semicolon, tab. The question is only what should be the default setting.
Frank "The user import feature DOES recognize the usual suspects: comma, semicolon, tab. The question is only what should be the default setting."
Well, as long as the "usual suspects" are recognized, does it really matter what the default setting is?
