I have a (rarely used) gitlab.com userid that works fine. I wanted to report an AMDGPU driver bug on Issues · drm / amd · GitLab, where I did not have an account, and forgot I already had the gitlab.com account. So I started to register for a new account on gitlab.freedesktop.org.
As it happens, I used the same email address as I used for gitlab.com, and got as far as the confirmation email. AFAIR I confirmed the account, and certainly if I try clicking on the link in that email I now get “1 error prohibited this user from being saved: Email was already confirmed, please try signing in”. Now I’m stuck, 'cos I can’t sign in.
Trying to login to gitlab.freedesktop.org just fails “Invalid login or password”. Trying to reset the password just takes me back to the login screen, and I get no reset email. Trying to login using gitlab fails with a screen saying “422 Sign-in using GitLab auth failed Sign-in failed because Email has already been taken.”.
Catch 22 - I can’t sign in using gitlab 'cos the email’s taken, but I can’t sign in with the email 'cos the password’s wrong, but I can’t change the password!
I suspect what’s needed is for an administrator to delete the half-assed userid on gitlab.freedesktop.org, but there’s no way I can find to contact their administrator.
I’d be most grateful for any assistance.
