If the FAS backend managed to create a new account in bugzilla, why

email change in FAS? (which is what I expected it to do)
This is because at the
time of writing, there was no XMLRPC method
exposed for changing a user's email. I just checked now, and there
might be a new method available that we can use. I'll look at
adding this to our scripts soon.
Anyone who changes email in FAS gets a new bugzilla account for the
email address? Is that how it's implemented currently?
This is currently
implemented as follows: When a user changes their
email in FAS, or changes their membership in the fedorabugs group, a
trigger runs which adds the user to a special queue table. We then run
a script periodically that empties out the queue and creates a BZ
account if one doesn't already exist, and grants privileges to the
accounts. The relevant code for this is in the FAS repo:
in scripts/export-bugzilla.* and fas2.sql.
