It's not passed down into the validation routines that actually check if the topic exists. So the registration is always rejected if the user topic exists.

This is getting harder to fix and I'm not sure it's really worth keeping the feature. An admin could use BulkRegistration to recreate a .htpasswd entry, but that's about it,

The overwrite option was not being passed down into the routines that validate the parameters, nor was it passed into the routine that writes the user topic. But fixing all that, it still doesn't work.

  • Existing topics have an "ALLOWTOPICCHANGE = TheUser" so the RegistrationAgent is unable to save the topic.
  • And after fixing that, it still doesn't overwrite the topic.

Going back to Foswiki 1.0.9, it seems to be broken in that release as well.
