Ideally we should also verify people's email addresses. Do we think that's overkill?

comment:2 Changed 3 years ago by dread

No responses received about this on ckan-discuss, so I'm taking that as no objections to requiring email address on registration.

I think that verifying email address is not worth it in this case, because the value of supplying an email address is only for resetting a password. The chance of needing a password reset AND having inputted an incorrect email address is very low, so I don't think it justifies everyone having to do this extra step. If we used email address more then that may change.

@dread: hope it is OK to re-assign to me but this is very similar to #1386 (and is a su bticket of #1343)
