#9032 inactive accounts should not be listed as package Cc/owner etc.
Closed: Fixed 4 months ago by pingou. Opened 7 months ago by jankratochvil.

In the past I wanted to rename my account jkratoch->jankratochvil. I was told I should create a new user and delete(?) the old one. Which I did but I cannot delete the old "jkratoch" user so I made "jkratoch" only "inactive" in the admin interface.
Now I was told I am Cced on a package with the old account:
https://lists.fedoraproject.org/archives/list/devel@lists.fedoraproject.org/message/VOOGPFVMQOEP5H4NFMXQM7ECJHDHRRRZ/
Either it should refuse to switch to "inactive" with still some subscribed events or it should be sending some notifications to such inactive account or so.
I do not mind, it is now solved for me, this is just a RFE.


Well, that would make FAS need to know the status of things in dist-git. I honestly don't think that this is something we want, it would just make our systems more intertwined than they are.

I do think we can/should work on sending regular notifications to users who do not have a valid bugzilla account and the email I've sent is/should be the first one of a more regular process :)

This is now addressed, so if one was to create a new FAS account and change their bugzilla email from the old one to the new one, that script (a toddler) will notify them and us until the old account is either fixed to have a valid bugzilla account or is no longer associated with any packages in dist-git.

I think this covers this ticket, so I'm going to close it as Fixed :)

Feel free to re-open if you disagree!
