Subject RE: is now live - Regression Check

I used the same password again because I didn't want to have more than one associated with  

I generate unique passwords for all accounts.  In this case it was a simplification to preserve
"single-sign-on" between the site and the bugzilla here.  And whatever else
it accomplished, the issues that I had previously filed are now again "hot" with links in
the places where "orcmid" appears.

Since the password is still not useful except where I have on an account,
I am not too worried that I have expanded my personal attack surface in any significant way.

Hi Dennis,

I don't see why using the same password would be any benefit. In fact
that's contradictory to anything that's usually said about choosing
passwords. The new Bugzilla also isn't coupled to the OOo user database
anymore, so there's really no need to have identical passwords.

However, while currently the mail forwarder still exists
that may change in future, so setting up a different mail address with
BZ probably needs to be done anyway at some point.
