I have no idea.  I'm not defending the actions of whomever forced the
password reset, I'm just trying to explain what I gather their
motivation was.

Arguing about it on a Fedora list isn't likely to change anything.  For
better or worse we share our bug tracking with Red Hat's bug tracking,
and will from time to time come up against things like this.  What could
be discussed here is whether or not the pains we hit here are worth the
pains we'd encounter by running our own instance of bugzilla.
