Description (last modified by Timothy_Gu)

At https://trac.ffmpeg.org/reset_password

you are required to enter your username AND email.
That's retarded.

If you forget your username, you are fucked. If you remember your username but are not sure which email you used, you are fucked.

Decent sites either let you enter whichever you want, or they only require the email (the former option is obviously better).

You can file a ticket against Trac's AccountManagerPlugin, which we use for account management. There are multiple reasons for this redirection:

  1. if this change is truly universal to all "decent sites," it should be fixed at the root, instead of us rolling an ad hoc change.
  2. we don't know Python.
