From: firstname.lastname@example.org To: timeless+composer@... Subject: mozilla.org Bugzilla Account Information To log into Bugzilla, use the following login and password: Login: timeless+composer@... There's no indication of the real name (email@example.com) Imagine that someone decides to taunt a coworker who is about to get a bugzilla account. They can create an account coworker@host w/ realname "kick me". Their coworker gets the account info and password and logs in. It isn't impossible for the person not to realize the problem for a while, and even if they do notice it, there's no real hint about why the comments they made have this insult instead of an email address. (that's the negative form of the issue) At the very least, the to: line should be of the form: Real Name <email@address> if there's a real name and there should be a Real Name: [realname] line before the Login: line if there's a real name.
confirming enhancement request
Enhancements which don't currently have patches on them which are targetted at 2.18 are being retargetted to 2.20 because we're about to freeze for 2.18. Consideration will be taken for moving items back to 2.18 on a case-by-case basis (but is unlikely for enhancements)
Bugzilla 2.20 feature set is now frozen as of 15 Sept 2004. Anything flagged enhancement that hasn't already landed is being pushed out. If this bug is otherwise ready to land, we'll handle it on a case-by-case basis, please set the blocking2.20 flag to '?' if you think it qualifies.
is this still valid?
this was obsoleted by token style account creation.
