That should be the only one you find. It's the correct and only place
to change your wp.org password.

Yes, I know the profile system is inconsistent and weird. Lots of
stuff to work on there. A lot of this is due to differing versions of
bbPress on themes and plugins. Upgrading these is difficult since
there's so much custom code there.
