idea: OpenID enabled

Can you guys apply the OpenID patch for MediaWiki so people don’t need to create a login?

I will forward the request to the OSM wiki developers. However that won’t work on the forum (yet) as it doesn’t use wiki authentication at all…

There was a post in the mailing list about this -

Some additional info on using OpenID for this forum: There is work being done to the forum developers to make 3rd party authentication easier. Others have already noted that OpenID is an interesting implementation, so I guess in the future this forum will be using OpenID when OSM is starting to use it as well.
