Re: New GNOME Account password reset tool is live!


that's correct, SSH keys are not a requirement anymore when requesting Foundation membership or a GNOME Account. I made sure the GitLab form for new membership applications [1] and GNOME Accounts [2] also reflects this. 

Thanks and please let me know whether I missed anything on the templates!

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.

Awesome! Will this allow us to phase out SSH keys for LDAP accounts
and foundation memberships? (I thought I'd filed a ticket for that but
may have dreamt it.)
