#8032 Set up primary emails for test users (paster setup-app)


If user does not have primary email some functionality is not working (notifications and stuff).

We should set up primary emails for test users. Anytime I'm re-creating my dev environment I'm manually creating emails for at least root, admin and test-user-1. And it's pretty painful, since you need to type email, re-type the password, get confirmation link from server logs.

Its low priority, obviously, but would be good to have.

    Specifically which accounts are to be given an email id? And what would they be?

      I'm thinking all of the accoounts created in bootstrap.py during setup should have emails.

      They can be in a form "<username>@allura.local" or something like that. It's just fake, test data.

        I found only two ways to add a confirmed email.

        1. Add the email through post on '/auth/save_new' and then to '/auth/verify_addr'.
        2. Changing the Model.EmailAddress.conformed property directly to true.

        Is there any other way? If not, which should be preferred from the above?

          save_new calls claim_address which looks like a useful helper function to run. And then after that setting the .confirmed property directly seems fine to me.

            The "save_new" requires a turbogears session. The session is not available during paster setup-app. So I did a workaround of user claiming the email address, and then confirming it.
