In Nodestream contributors can be both people with and without a user account. For the ones that do have a user account it would be cool to have a way to keep the contributor node in sync with the user account so the user only has to update stuff like photo, bio, etc. in one place.

I am working on creating a rule or two to achieve this. Let me know if there is an easier way. :)

Oh, also let me know if this is at all desired for Nodestream ;)

Seems like a nice feature! Works somewhat like the module Cross clone but for User <-> Node.

This should actually be possible now, because Cross clone supports entity references, and we moved everything over to entity references now. Definitely worth looking into!

Wouldn't it be smarter to "just" use the data directly from the user object when the contributor is an existing Drupal user?

Lars, you mean instead of the clone?

Yes basically what I was thinking, it doesn't make much sense to keep data updated 2 places.
