ok. No need to reply to everyone after this... I'll work with you to
get this fixed. ;)
a) Try the password reset again? Often the yahoo problems come and go
and you might get the reset email this time. If you do, login and
change your email from the interface as well as your password.
b) If you don't get anything by tonight, please mail me directly and I
will see if I can change your email in the account system. This will
allow you to then request a reset and it should go to the new email.
1. Kavein Fenzi,
thank you for your quick reply. I understand now the problem. I'm
glad that it's not FedoraProject website by yahoo - these
corporations....:) I appology then. ok, I am going to use my gmail
what I need you guys to do now is to delete my login i.e. 'breadfan'
so that i could login as breadfan but with the new gmail account. for
now I cannot do so with gmail account, as login 'breafan' already
exist but with yahoo account, as we know.
I think that Karsten might be of some help here. Karsten I copied
your email at the vy bottom so that you could follow the issue. i
presume you are rather busy there so I dont want to send anonymous
emails out of nowhere:)
Could some of you then confirm once my login is deleted or my mail is
replaced (to gmail). I could then finalize the login process and
start finally doing sth for Fedora enthusiast.
thanks a lot for all your support on this.
greetings from Dublin/wheather here is fabulous...

The problem here is sadly yahoo. ;(
They quite often block the entire fedoraproject.org
domain due to some
random spam report, so we can't get any emails through to yahoo
users. We have talked to them many times and they refuse to do
anything to help us. ;(
Is there any way you could use a gmail or hotmail or other free
account? If not, please just try again in a day or so and hopefully
whatever block they have on us will have expired. ;(
Sorry for the bad news..

So I don't have any special authorization to manage or look at
accounts, but I can see that your account is there from a general
query to the account system:

You should be able to go to this page:
Click on "Forgot Password?", then put breadfan in to the "Username:"
field and waldemar.antonik(a)yahoo.ie in to the 'Email:' field, then
If you have done that but not received an email, you should check any
spam folders you have.
It's likely the account system is sending you an email to reset your
password, but the email is not getting to your inbox for some reason.
If you look through all your mail and spam folders but cannot find
anything, then we could ask the Infrastructure team to check the mail
logs. That can be requested by anyone with an account creating a
ticket at http://fedorahosted.org/fedora-infrastructure
