    How can I change the name "Mr WordPress" at the first comment of WordPress MU?
    Thanks in advanced!

    I'm wondering this myself.

    Those are in the wp-includes/wpmu-function.php file. You may want to spend some time looking at that file. That's where a lot of the special code is.

    If we contribute code to parameterize that file, initially into a config file and later into a control panel item, will our changes get rolled into the distro?

    *shrug* Not a clue. Best bet would be to submit it to trac and let Donncha take a look at it.

    Honest answer though - I'd say no. There's already a pair of rewrites in there that have been in there for quite some time. The multipage end user's theme page and I forget the other one.

    Find the following lines
    $wpdb->query("INSERT INTO $wpdb->comments (comment_post_ID, comment_author, comment_author_email, comment_author_url, comment_author_IP, comment_date, comment_date_gmt, comment_content) VALUES ('1', '".addslashes(__('Mr WordPress'))."', '', 'http://" . $current_site->domain . $current_site->path . "', '127.0.0.1', '$now', '$now_gmt', '".addslashes(__('Hi, this is a comment.<br />To delete a comment, just log in, and view the posts\' comments, there you will have the option to edit or delete them.'))."')");
    in function install_blog_defaults
    And replace Mr Wordpress with whatever you like,
