I'd guess that you need to change it in bugzilla first,
If the FAS backend managed to create a new account in bugzilla, why would
I need to _change_ an existing one myself? Can't it sync bugzilla with my
email change in FAS? (which is what I expected it to do)
Anyone who changes email in FAS gets a new bugzilla account for the changed
email address? Is that how it's implemented currently?
and I'd bet you'll
have to contact the bugzilla owner to get it changed in its current state.
Well, I could ask bugzilla to send me a password, then reassign the
superfluous account to a throw-away address.
Let me talk to Toshio first though to confirm that. We might be able
fix it on our end, not sure.
