Hi, sorry to bother you with this minor request but I'm unable to remove my old, primary email in gerrit. The stale email is email@example.com, username is awight.
The account no more has an email.

And it has been deleted via:

Anyway haven't you left the foundation? If so I am surprised the account is still active.
The full context is that I'm continuing to use my account for volunteer purposes, so what I'm trying to do is switch it over to use email@example.com to preferred email. I'm still unable to do that from the web UI, maybe I just need to wait for changes to propagate though.
The change is immediate, I am confused as to how you managed to drop the email anyway. It is also supposedly fetched from LDAP so I do not quite know how you managed to remove it.
Anyway, can you try heading to https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/settings/contact hit Reload. That will log you out and ask to login again. Hopefully that would refresh metadata from LDAP and would get your email setup. Else we need to find out how to fix it up :]
