openid users don't have proper accounts and can't change passwords?

Issue #3145 resolved

created an issue

I registered for bitbucket with openid so consequently I don't have a bitbucket password.

There seems to be no way of making a bitbucket password (since the forms all ask for the old password which I don't have, obviously).

The trouble is, a password seems to be required for important operations like removing a repository.

    Hi Nic,

    We know that our openId support does not provide the best experience and I apologize for that.

    When you signed up you should have received a generated password, even though you signed up with openId. This is the password you are ment to provide (I know that kinda sucks).

    You can reset the password by using the forgot password link on the login page.

    Sorry for the trouble,
