RESETTING A PASSWORD FOR AN EXISTING ACCOUNT

First make sure that the user does not already have a different account id than they tell you by checking the svn-passwd using grep, cat, an editor, etc. 

You need to run the same script that initially creates an svn account on source.sakaiproject.org

$ ssh {your_id}@source.sakaiproject.org
$ cd /usr/local/svn/config
$ /usr/local/svn/bin/svnpasswd USERID

This will generate a _suggested_ password that you need to cut-n-paste at the command line prompt and then send the password to the user.
