Merge thiagop account into outbrito

Asked by Thiago Paiva Brito on 2020-09-01


It's been 4 years I'm not using launchpad with my old account and I lost access to the email of my previous employer. I created a new account with my personal email and I'd like to merge my previous account into this one to keep my contribution history.

Thanks a lot

Hi, Thiago! Tudo bem?

In order to do this account merge, we would need some proof that you actually own the ~thiagop account.

Since you do not have access to that old account, do you think you still have the SSH key registered on that old Launchpad account? If so, we could use that to verify the account ownership.

E aí Thiago, tudo bem, e vcocê?

Unfortunately I don't have access to that key anymore since it was generated on my workstation at UFCG. Is there any other ways that we can use to verify the ownership?

Thanks for your help!

Hey, Thiago!

Unfortunately, from the data you have in your old account, the only way we have for you to prove the account ownership would be either using the e-mail, or the SSH key registered there.

Maybe you could ask at your college to get your e-mail account temporarily, just to reset your password and request the account merge?

Ok, no worries. I'll try to contact them.

Thanks for your help!
