Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

As users will use that when they have forgotten their passwords. wink

Default {AuthScripts} setting lists the passwd and resetpasswd scripts as authenticated, but .htaccess boilerplate says:

# NB. The resetpasswd & passwd scripts are used to reset and change passwords.
# They do their own validation of the user and therefore
# should not use "require valid-user"

Since resetpasswd sems to be used only by BulkResetPassword, maybe passwd should by made not authenticated.


passwd should never be authenticated, {AuthScripts} is wrong. I put that note in .htaccess because I knew it would tempt someone.
