#354 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add a ''password reminder'' feature

Reported by: cboos Owned by: mgood
Priority: low Component: AccountManagerPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords: password
Cc: gunnar Trac Release: 0.10


For people having less neurons than different Trac accounts,
it would be interesting to have a Password Reminder feature,
as increasing the number of neurons is usually not an option ;)

That could be the usual form with two fields (user / e-mail address),
and if either the user exists and has an e-mail address registered
or the given e-mail address is the one of a registered user, then
an e-mail containing the forgotten password could be sent to that

Since the passwords are (or should be) stored as a hash, you won't be able to send the forgotten password, but you could make a new password and send that.

That would be convenient too, of course.

It recently happened to me to forget a password for a Roundup account,
and Roundup does actually do just what you suggested.
