The passphrase for my account kami@freebsd.org is rejected and I cannot change it. I also wanted to request an account merge.

Bugzilla uses cluster authentication (LDAP). The process for
changing/resetting passwords is:

1) ssh to freefall.  run 'kinit'.  If you know what your kerberos
password is and it works, then you are good to go.

2) if you don't know what it is, instead ssh to 'kpasswd.freebsd.org'
using your regular ssh credentials.  This will generate a new random
kerberos password for you.  After this, you should be able to do the
'kinit' from step 1.

3) If you want to change your password because you don't like the evil
random password from step 2, ssh to freefall and change the password
with the 'kpasswd' command.  Follow the prompts.  You should be good for
kinit after this.

Please confirm after successfully resetting your password

How embarrassing, I skipped straight to the bugzilla chapter in the comitter's guide, not looking at kerberos.

Has long been resolved.
