[Buildbot-devel] problem logging into trac.buildbot.net after password reset (and bug report)

I went to report a bug at trac.buildbot.net. I reset my password and
attempted to log in with the new password. trac.buildbot.net/login returned
an error:


TracError: The password file could not be updated. Trac requires
                    read and write access to both the password file
                    and its parent directory."

The bug I wanted to report is in buildbot master 0.8.8 on line 798 of
buildbot/status/mail.py, it seems that it should be a , not a +:

    def _gotRecipients(self, rlist, m):


            if VALID_EMAIL.search(r):



                twlog.msg("INVALID EMAIL: %r" + r)

this has resulted in log messages like:

2014-01-03 10:49:49-0800 [-] INVALID EMAIL: %r at XXXXX.com
