So I have a DW wiki account named Pauamma (userid 14), which I log into using OpenID, and for which I'd like to set the email address to pauamma@dreamwidth.org, so I can get emailed when pages on my watchlist change. However:

- http://wiki.dreamwidth.net/wiki/index.php?title=Special:ChangeEmail&returnto=Special%3APreferences wants me to enter my current password, which I don't know (assuming I even have one) because OpenID.

- http://wiki.dreamwidth.net/wiki/index.php?title=Special:ChangePassword&returnto=Special%3APreferences (which I tried next) also wants to know my current password.

- http://wiki.dreamwidth.net/wiki/index.php?title=Special:PasswordReset&returnto=Special%3APreferences doesn't, but complains that I don't have an email address set.

Any way out of that chicken-and-egg problem?

I believe email out of the machine has been nonfunctional for some time in any case.

There are a few things more urgently broken.
