Subject Extension email conversion - not
Date Wed, 21 Mar 2012 23:49:33 GMT
So I get this:

and go to the link. Turns out that the link requires cookies, initial
connect with cookies turned off failed. Turned cookies on & attempt to
change my password results in:

I try my OOo username - same result.

So I wander on over to - 0
and get this in return:

Chromium error is a little more ominous (and yes I know how to get
around the cert):

You guys can't even get your security certs sorted out:
CN = *
OU = Infrastructure
O = Apache Software Foundation
L = Forest Hill
ST = Maryland
C = US

I give up. The OOo users went through this when OOo went from Sun to
Collabnet/Oragle et al.
