A change was deployed to the Wikitech config 2019-04-15T23:16 UTC
which prevents users from logging into the wiki with a username that
differs in case from the 'cn' value for their developer account.
This change is not expected to cause problems for most users, but
there may be some people who have historically entered a username with
mismatched case (for example "bryandavis" instead of "BryanDavis")
relied on MediaWiki and the LdapAuthentication plugin figuring things
out. This will no longer happen automatically. These users will need
to update their password managers (or brains if they are not using a
password manager) to supply the username with correct casing.
The "wrongpassword" error message on Wikitech has been updated with a
local override to help people discover this problem. See
