minor error on registration page

Hi.

I just registered on http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/Join and
noticed that one sentence is not completely corrent, IMHO:

"* Your user name will become an email alias that forwards to the
email address you give above. E.g., username@tigris.org forwards to
username@yourdomain.com."

The example uses "username" which is part of the form in an incorrect
way, because it implies that the username I have given in the form is
also the first part of my email address, which is not necessarily
true, e.g. I can use username "foobar", but my email address may be
blafasel@mine.com. The example suggest that foobar@tigris.org forwards
to foobar@mine.com, which is probably not was meant.

How about "* Your user name, e.g. username@tigris.org, will become an
email alias that forwards to the email address you give above."

Sorry about the long mail about such a minor issue, but I am not good
in explaining things in short.

Ciao,

        Benjamin.
