MetaLink Logins change this weekend

Hi everyone
Further to my recent posting (link) on April 20, this coming weekend is the one when you will be required to change your login id for Oracle MetaLink (link). According to MetaLink:

Starting the weekend of May 19, all MetaLink users will be required to change their existing MetaLink account and use a valid email address as their user ID to replace their current MetaLink user name.
With these changes, you will be presented with a one-time conversion page that will display the email address that is currently in your MetaLink profile. You will be asked to confirm if this is your current email address that you wish to use as your new MetaLink user ID, your password will be reset, and you will be emailed a new password.
The second time you log into MetaLink, you will be required to use your email address and change your password. Customers with multiple MetaLink accounts or multiple email addresses will be taken through some additional steps to enable them to update all their accounts.

For more information, please refer to MetaLink notes 369689.1 and 361177.1
