Description Christoph Junghans gentoo-dev 2016-11-10 15:37:34 UTC
I would like to rename my gentoo account from "ottxor" to "junghans".
Comment 1 Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2016-11-10 23:25:34 UTC
Ok, we need to schedule a time with you for this.

At the moment we do the switchover, anything that uses the old username to authenticate will break. Having you on-hand to confirm it works after switchover is really useful.

Eg:
- SSH to dev.g.o
- Email on dev.g.o.
- Bugzilla (you are strongly encouraged to logout beforehand to avoid cookie issues)
- Forums
- CVS (Git will be fine, it identifies by keys)
Comment 2 Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2016-11-14 00:45:09 UTC
forum-mods:
please rename user s/ottxor/junghans/

a3li:
I didn't find any documentation on user-rename in the wiki. Not sure what there is other than change the database and update all of the pages, and/or if you have any tools for it.

DONE:
- LDAP (includes email)
- mailing lists
- mail alias (woodpecker)
- woodpecker shell (homedir moved, symlink in place at old name)
- Gitolite
- CVS username

THINGS-TO-DO-YOURSELF:
- add your new email address to your GPG key (remember to upload it!)
- Update any references in the git repos from your old username to the new one (URIs, metadata, copyright attributions etc)

There is a bit of tooling, database editing not a good idea.

Two separate things are involved here:
 1) Login/account name which we change on request
 2) Developer profile which can be changed independently

Christoph, I take you want your user to be "Junghans" on the Wiki? (1)
Also, feel free to make the appropriate edits on your user page at your convenience. (2)

Anything else to be done here or can we close it?
