BTW., this is one reason why I would prefer a Mageia user or contributor to 
have one account, for everything. It reduces the obstacles becoming a 
contributor. A user who post on the forum has a bugzilla account and a wiki 
account and should be able to provide feedback on packages etc.

Only when the user needs to be able to push changes somewhere without 
authorization of another contributor, does the user need to request privileged 
access (but, on the same account).
