Before launching my website I try several use case and I found one interesting.
How an user retrieves his password if he lost it?
When He clicks on the link "Forgot your password?" he enters his email and a temporary access key is sent to his address. But to change his password osqa requests his old one!

Same problem when an user he's created from administration area.

OSQA users can launch their website with a such problem???

I agree is not very correct, but is not the end of the world. You as a superuser have the ability to change the password of any user without typing the old one. Will have to do as a workaround for now, that is, if you think your users will keep forgetting their password, and will never use any other authentication method other the local authentication.

From a lambda user view, finding a problem like this one on a website it's a good reason to lost trust. Whatever, my comment was hard

If you say so... Plans are to alter this behavior, and I really hope your users won't run away because of this little error.
