I was told by Kelemen Peter, when I met him in Tampere earlier this year,
that it is an international convention to write your name like you've
accustomed to, but capitalise your last name.  So, I'd be Antti-Juhani
KAIJANAHO, you'd be Branden ROBINSON - and I had met KELEMEN Peter.

(Note that our friendly script handling the "who's behind Debian" web page
has screwed up sorting - Peter's name is at P, not K.)
