Ouch. That's very embarassing. That account was created for me during
the berlin sprint and I used it to contribute to the pypy EU proposal
when I was there and during the following weeks. I have never used it
Holger, could you send me a tarball of the home dir for me to check
that nothing important was there ? I'm not even sure I ever logged
in using a shell.
I apologize for the trouble. I never changed that password. Next time,
we'll have to let the system generate one instead of picking up the
first word that comes to mind that will make a better temporary password.
