Quoting from the NEWS file under 2.1.10
- There is a new mm_cfg.py/Defaults.py variable
OWNERS_CAN_CHANGE_MEMBER_PASSWORDS which controls whether the list
owner can change a member's password from the member's options page.
This defaults to No and should be changed to Yes only if list owners
are trusted to not change a member's password, log in as the member
and make global membership changes.
You can set
OWNERS_CAN_CHANGE_MEMBER_PASSWORDS = Yes
in mm_cfg.py to restore the pre 2.1.10 behavior, but you should be
aware of the above security implication.
