Password file should normalize username
Closed, ResolvedPublic



family = 'wikipedia'
mylang = 'en'
usernames['wikipedia']['en'] = u'valhallasw'
password_file = 'password'


(u'valhallasw', 'topsecretpassword')

The password is not used, as the username is u'Valhallasw' once LoginManager checks the password file.

LoginManager should normalize the usernames in the password file.

Use (u'Valhallasw', 'topsecretpassword') in the password file.
