I meant the autocreation of users in Bugzilla, not autocreation of users 
in general.

The user would already be known to the ASF, and would have already 
logged in, so there would be no point in expecting Bugzilla to ask the 
user to tell it information that the httpd instance running above it 
already knows with certainty.
