Thanks

A simple "thank you" goes a long way, you know? Ever have that experience? Someone recognizes your work in some way and just, well, says thanks. And they mean it. It`s genuine. You know these things when you see them, don't you? It's obvious.

That's the impression I am getting these last few of weeks. Since we deployed the new authentication system at auth.opensolaris.org, we have been getting a steady flow of questions and thank you comments on the website-admin mailing list as people ask us to reset passwords and/or user names and such.

This is a normal part of the transition process as people revalidate their account details, provide two security questions/answers, and just generally check their user information. Everyone has to do it, so out of 100K or so people registered on the site there will inevitably be a certain number who forgot passwords or have other issues from the data migration. So, a few of us are fixing these guys -- all minor issues thus far -- and the reaction has been most hearting. Just normal discussion, the fixing of a problem, and a nice "thanks" to wrap it up. We've also gotten some private complements from highly technical people who understand the complexities involved in moving to the new system, which Alan and the website development team implemented recently. Very cool.
