Please send it only once, I do not care to which address. But here are some 
suggestions for improvement:

1) Please use a consistent subject for these mails:

February: Fedora Project Password Reset Request
December(1): FAS Password Change Request
December(2): FAS Password

2) The mail from 2009-02-09 only said, that the password will expire. It was 
not mentioned that also further action will occur, e.g. afaik the contents of where moved. E.g. I only changed my password because I had to 
submit a security update, but otherwise I would not have cared for an expired 
password, because of little available time for Fedora work right now. 
Nevertheless I would have cared about moved contents or 
missing CVS notifications.

3) A two week deadline is imho too short. It may be especially bad if the contents are really moved and someone who is on vacation 
hosts a shared SCM there or other contents of wide interest.
