I would like to delete my accounts:
- https://bugs.archlinux.org (username: Xorg)
- https://accounts.archlinux.org (username: X0rg)

I did not find any option to do that by myself.
Could you delete these accounts? I do not use them anymore.

This task depends upon

Sorry, Arch is a bit like the Hotel California "You can check out any time you like, But you can never leave" :)

But seriously, the Bug Tracker is not the place for such requests. But I will assign this to some bug tracker admins to see if they can get this sorted.

Sorry if this is the wrong place for this kind of request, but I did not find a place where to contact admins.

Account creation is easy, updating the account is easy, but why there is no way to delete it?
Delete accounts allow to:
- free some space
- make the nickname available to someone else
- give users the right to be forgotten

Some services allow users to initiate account deletion by themselves, without bothering an administrator.

For the bugtracker this won't happen as it's kinda dead upstream. For keycloak we should enable users to delete their own account
