I have been researching your identity.  We are always concerned with identity theft.  And lack of auxiliary confirmations such as ssh keys and gpg keys makes this more difficult.

Through use of archive.org and various other resources I have convinced myself that Antoine Kalmbach is the same person using both the registered account email and your current email.  Although there is some possibility that it is not.  It's down to a judgement call.

Therefore I have updated your account email to be the new one.  Please use the Lost Password recovery process to reset your password.  It should be available to you now.

Sorry for the delay. Time and life are what keeps everything from happening all at once.

Hi Bob, thanks for replying.

Sorry about the email, this bug tracker actually did prompt me for an email address so I assumed that was going to be the contact response channel.

So the new contact address is <ane@iki.fi>. I have seen your email, but am replying here. Although anonymously since I cannot login - I will send a short confirmation email.

As you properly guessed, I don't have access to those old email addresses, as far as I can tell they are no longer even functional. (For curiosity's sake, this will never happen again, as my current mail address is a special forwarding address designed to stay operational forever.)

What do we do now?

Antoine

Hello Antoine,

Searching I found your account here.

https://savannah.nongnu.org/users/anzuhan

But worse is that you did not include an email address that you would use for a contact response now. So I will simply make a ticket update and wait and see if you can update this with a current address.  I will send a note to both of the addresses I see mentioned even though you say you no longer have access to them.

Hi,

I have had a user account here for a long time, and would like to start using Savannah again. Unfortunately, I don't remember my password, and worse, I don't have access to my old email address.

I think my email address was anzu@mbnet.fi, or could have also been anzuhan@ihme.org.

Would it be somehow possible to prove that I am, well, me? I would also like to change my login from "anzuhan" to "ane", if possible.

Regards,
Antoine Kalmbach
