New GNOME Account password reset tool is live!


the GNOME Infrastructure is making available a new web based tool that will help you resetting your account password in case it was lost. As many of you know, the current way of updating your password was running a command on your terminal making sure your SSH key was up-to-date with the one we have on our systems. That was creating a barrier to contributors which aren't comfortable using a terminal, SSH or other developer oriented toolings. The new solution will ease the process and remove the need of utilizing a console and/or owning an SSH key.

You can access the new tool at:

Documentation [1] has been updated to reflect this change as well. For any issue with the service, please open an issue at [2].



P.S the former password reset method (`ssh -l username`) has been removed/deprecated
