Well to be fair, unless you use some encryption like gpg to send the
pwd, there's not much one could do.
But I'm not sure the overhead that implies is reasonable for a public
bugzilla (there's not much money to gain, aside from some kind of spam

Maybe the mail should mention to directly change that pwd (or provide
a one-time pwd you need to change on first login), but then again it's
plain http, so that doesn't help much.
