I don't know if this is instance-specific or not, or how to find out. If the problem I am reporting is specific to MacPorts (see below), then I apologise for the misplaced ticket.

I was unable to log in to the MacPorts Trac instance with an e-mail in mixed caps and the correct password; but entering the e-mail in all lowercase and the same password allowed me to log in as expected. (The password was cut-and-pasted, so I am sure it was the same.)

I think it's confusing for an e-mail to be case sensitive; and, worse, I'm almost positive that I entered the e-mail in mixed caps when I registered, so that the log-in may be being silently lowercased.

A Trac user name doesn't have to be an e-mail address. So the default of being case-sensitive makes at least some sense.

If case-insensitive user names are desired, the [trac] ignore_auth_case option in trac.ini should be set to true.
