By request of Nikolai Prokoschenko who is the current default owner of Tech Evangelism: Europe: East, we request that the default owner be changed to: Nikolai Prokoschenko <firstname.lastname@example.org>. His current e-mail address: <email@example.com> is no longer usable accorfding to Nikolai. Nikolai, your new e-mail is not registered in Bugzilla. Can you create an account under the new e-mail address and then report it in this bug? Whoever owns this component then can change the default owner address.
Hello, I'm Nikolai, but from another address. Following problem: After I've sent the email to Katsuhiko, I tried to do the change myself - I already had opened an account for firstname.lastname@example.org. So I changed the e-mail for that account to email@example.com and tried to change the email address for firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com Unfortunately, it didn't work. I can't login as firstname.lastname@example.org, because according to Bugzilla such account doesn't exists, yet I cannot create a new one, because, once again according to Bugzilla, an account with this email address already exists. What do I do now? Ideally, I'd like my email@example.com account to be removed and firstname.lastname@example.org to be renamed to email@example.com Thank you.
if the old address is dead, it would have been much preferable to change the existing account to use the new address, which we now can't do since there's been a new account created with that address. Probably what should happen is the new account get renamed to firstname.lastname@example.org or something like that, then change the email address on the existing account. This is Gerv's territory I believe.

What a mess. I've renamed email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org. The password for this account is unchanged. I've disabled email@example.com. Note that this does not affect bugmail sent to that account. Kat: please note that, if someone wants their email account changed, creating a new account under the new name is not the right thing to advise :-) The correct procedure is simply for the person to use the normal mechanism to change the email address associated with their account; their status as default owner of things will not be changed by this move.
