That will be fixed as soon as you are a Debian Developer. You should make sure
you become one quickly! :)
The reason behind the -guest is that the accounts from the debian ldap are
synchronized with alioth, so it is necessary to have a way to distinguish
between DDs and non-DDs, especially to ensure that an account is not used on
alioth already when a new DD requests to have the name.
Hope that explains it :)
