> I recently signed up  for an account at issues.apache.org/jira in order to
> submit some bugs.  I noted that the url switched over to https when I went to the login
screen, so I felt relatively confident that the information I typed in would be secure.
> However, shortly after I filled out the form I received an email that CONTAINED MY PASSWORD
IN PLAIN TEXT!!!  I didn't even ask for a password reset, yet for some reason jira decided
that I needed to be told what I just entered, and in a form that anyone sniffing the network
(or just glancing at my screen as I read my email) could read.  That email should be turned
off asap.
