Hi Planet Ubuntu 😀
My name is Harald Sitter (aka apachelogger), yesterday I finally became Kubuntu/Ubuntu member, so here I am, intorducing myself.
[Riddell] congratulations apachelogger, welcome to kubuntu and ubuntu membership
…..Since I’m Amarok’s wiki dude (among other things … election for project manager scheduled :-P) I recently started to move our wiki’s to OpenID, and I actually can say: we have a working version going.
While we did the configuration we had to face one really important question -> What to do with the exsisting users? -> this is especially important considering we want to move the public Amarok wiki as soon as possible to OpenID. Ian and I finally came to the decision to run a dual login (at least for the first half year or something).
This way users can still use the password logins, but can’t create new ones. In other words: “old” users should convert to OpenID at some point, new ones will have to get an OpenID.
I came up with AmarokLogin, a MediaWiki extension combining the default login with the OpenID one (see screenshot). The code is still far away from perfect and at the current point I wouldn’t even think about releasing it to the public (would be hell embarrassing ;-), basically one can consider it as a basic hack, however it is completely functional.
To sum it up….
Status: work in progress… Public Release: no idea… Aim: bring OpenID love to our beloved contributors 😀
