[SAC] spam in Redmine :-(

User Eric Kelly is spamming in QGIS issue tracker



Have to find out if this is a local QGIS user or an osgeo user...

I think can be safetly hibernated... but. How he over-passed mantra?

He did not, QGIS chooses to also allow local users to be created after
some discussion earlier:


So this is a QGIS local user.

Investigating now, it looks like
we have 6565 users, of which 2198 locals

Every day 10 users are locally created, about 30% never logged in yet.

I'm still in favor of only let people login via osgeo account.

People against it, start weeding spam :wink:

+1 in favor of closing local account creation.

+1, and not only for spam (dealing with name clashes is another one).
