This page lists requests to recover Savannah accounts, with relevant links and summaries, in reverse chronological order since May, 2020.

  • 2024-03-26 savannah-help-private It was pointed out that raghunandan297 has 'real name' saying the account was compromized. The password was reset, and the email was changed from @gmail to, with notifying the admin of the only Savannah group the account was member of (gnucap). The admin silently removed the account from that group within a day. On 2024-04-01, the 'real name' was changed to say the account was disabled.
  • 2024-01-11 savannah-users The OP was able to recover when told the email registered in the account.
  • 2024-01-05 savannah-help-public The OP requests re-using user_name from account #74148 deleted before 2017 when user_names weren't cleared on deletion. An admin of Savannah removes the account using the new procedure (the [Delete] button). The account with name is re-registered within a few hours.
  • 2024-01-02 savannah-hackers-private Verify with the GPG key registered in the account and update the email per request.
  • 2023-06-21 Update email based on data from user's LibrePlanet page linked from the Resume page.
  • 2022-06-02 No real proof of identity, the account had no keys registered, but it was in no group, its contributions in trackers were quite few, the old email bounced. Updated email.
  • 2022-05-27 Used ssh key to verify identity.
  • 2021-06-05 savannah-hackers-private A user requested deleting two accounts of someone else; without confirmation of account owners, the request is cancelled (as of 2021-06-24).
  • 2021-03-21 savannah-hackers-private <> The maintainer of GNU gengen requested adding the new account to the gengen group instead of the lost one; the registered email of the new account was listed in maintainers.bypkg, so the request was accepted.
  • 2021-03-01 As of 2021-03-22, no proof of identity found; decline so far.
  • 2021-02-14 Verify with GPG key.
  • 2021-01-09 Little previous activity from the account; update without verifying.
  • 2020-11-21 Update account email from an UID in GPG key.
  • 2020-10-26 Update based on external research that still leaves a possibility of identity theft.
