> As you are probably aware we have been working to restore services

> If you have admin privs in jira your password was reset by us, so
> you'll need to use the password reset form in jira to regain access.

> When you do login to jira be sure to double-check your contact info.

> To change your ldap password login to people.apache.org and run
