Hi Piotr

The howto is outdated, as far as I recall. It never got modified since P4,
No, I rewrote major parts of it. But I updated it with information on what I saw
in the dictionaries, which isn't necessarily the TEI reality.

Ahhh, I apologize! I didn't mean to demean that, gosh, I forgot that you did more than just reedit.

I didn't say anything about <name>, and frankly, I don't even fully understand
your question
Karl asked whether we are using name or the who attribute or both to markup

I don't think he's posed this very alternative or I misunderstood (by maybe wrongly rationalizing Karl's question). You use both, of course. <name> in the respStmt, and @who to refer back to the <name>.

You mentioned that swh-eng is a good example That one doesn't use name.
 From my experience so far, the who attribute of the change tag only contains
user names,

Nope, @who contains a reference.

swh-eng contains, for example:

               <resp>corrected by</resp>
               <name xml:id="bansp">Piotr Bański, bansp at o2.pl</name>

and then, lower down, e.g.

<change n="0.4.2" when="2009-04-17" who="#bansp">

the name tag contains the real name. Personally, I don't care about
the user name, rather about the real name.

There is no "user name". You are confusing "user name" with a reference (more precisely, a reference to a <name> element).

<name xml:id="shumenda">Sebastian Humenda</name>

contains your name and an ID that may accidentally be identical to what you chose as a user name on some systems. But in this case, the concept of a user name doesn't exist.

Therefore is my question, basically
the similar to Karl's question: which one to use, or even both? Should one of
these approaches be enforced by the ODD?
If you consider something outdated, please tell me/us, I'm writing tooling to
automate processes and I don't want to automate the wrong thing.

Sorry for any confusion caused.

No problem, I hope I've managed to shed some light on that.
