SourceForge.net Password Reset Required

Greetings,

To make sure we’re following current best practices for security, we’ve made some changes to how we’re storing user passwords. As a result, the next time you go to login to your SourceForge.net account, you will be prompted to change your password. Once this is done, your password will be stored more securely. We recommend that you do this at your earliest convenience by visiting the SourceForge website and logging in.

And, as always, be vigilant about password security. Use a secure password, never include your password in an email, and don’t click on links for unsolicited password resets.

If you have any concerns about this, please contact SourceForge support at sfnet_ops@slashdotmedia.com

Best regards,
SourceForge Team

I reset my password via e-mail, then said "why am I not using Open ID here, I'm clearly signed into google." So I logged in to SF (new password), went to attach my Google account as an open ID, and it would not accept my new password. I changed my SF password (using my new password and confirming my now new-new password). Still no dice. Guess it's just broken.

Did that - entered a password with 10 chars. Denied. 11 chars. Denied. 14 chars worked. The new password verification seems broken (done in FF29.0.1). (It said 10 char min)
