Subject RE: Gettng Into the New Bugzilla
Date Tue, 15 Nov 2011 07:35:14 GMT
Assuming that you previously had a password on the OO.o Bugzilla, when you go 
to the you should see the page that comes up for 
a non-logged in user.

If you had an OO.o ID before, the account name will be ooo-id@ 
(E.g., where ooo-id = NoOp, if you had that.)

The Forgot Password link on the top of the page changes the main page to one 
with a Login: field and a Reset Password button.  Type the full e-mail address 
made from your OO.o ID there.  Or, if you always had a different e-mail as 
your ID for bugzilla, type that there.

That should take you through to the screen that says a token for changing your 
password has been emailed to you.

Follow the link in the email.

Put in a password (twice). When I did this I used my old password, since I had 
it in my password safe.

Submit.  When you get the "Your Password has been changed" your account is 
restored.  That means your "My bugs" history is restored, and you can be 
reached through all of the appearance of your User Name in existing bug 

If you used a non-OO.o email, you are done.

If you used an ooo-id@, that email will cease working soon. 
Now is a good time to change your ID:

Click "Home".

Click "Log In" on the BZ Home Page.

Enter the full e-mail address and the password next to the Log in button.

When that takes, click "Preferences"

You should have an option to change your e-mail address.  Use an address that 
you don't mind having be visible on bug reports.  Also change the optional 
"Your real name" though it is probably defaulted to NoOp.

Go through that ritual, without changing your password.

This should send an e-mail to the old and to the new address.  Ignore the one 
to the old ( address.  Do the confirming reply at the new 
address.  This will cause the new address to become the new identifier of your 
account, but all of the old associations will be preserved.

PS: More remodeling to come, I believe.  I just logged out and took myself 
through this drill.  I don't have an address as my account any 
longer, so I can't do the email change again.   I am not sure if that means I 
am now stuck with the ID I changed to 24 hours ago.

Ah well... this is interesting:

But of course there is no "Forgot Password" link on the page &
attempting to login results in:
The username or password you entered is not valid.

I've no time for this now... I'll have another look when I do. In the
interim you & the other folks at OOo-Apache have the information &
ability to easily replicate the issue.
