Merge your old Bugzilla account with your new one

I noticed that we have a lot of “duplicate” accounts in our Bugzilla DB. Did you know that we can merge your old account with your new one?
That means the entire history of your old account will be linked with the new one, so that we can remove the old one later.

Just poke me (idl0r) in IRC (#gentoo-infra or #gentoo-bugs) or by mail idl0r AT gentoo DOT org.

*UPDATE*
I totally forgot this part…
It seems many users don’t even know that they can simply change their login name/mail address in Bugzilla.
Simply change your mail address in the Account tab of your Bugzilla Preferences. So there is no need to create a new account just because you have/want a new mail address for it. :)

    1. There is a script, contrib/merge-users.pl . It changes every userid that refers to the old account to the new one. The old account will be removed afterwards.
