Hm, I am not sure if we need this in our setup. We need anyway to
ensure that a user exists in the eDirectory (== iChain) database,
Why is that? Might sound naive, but I think it's time to revisit this
Because we use the IDs for refering to other systems (bugzilla for
example). We use the login name as key (to map to email address for
bugzilla) for refering to the user.
I of course know that. But this argument is weak.
We're not talking about loosing the user identifying strings. For a
new implementation it would be mandatory that you can connect your
existing iChain account to an openID account. But it would not be
mandatory to _have_ an iChain account, an openID would be sufficient.
Of course the openID-only variant would loose the bugzilla connect,
which is not really used anyway. All other systems can work with the
Well it is used. But you can argument that we enforce to use the iChain
account only for some users where we need this. (We need it for maintained
packages the contact email address, which is also used for the bugzilla
break as long not all other systems would also accept openID
at the same point of time.
How would you request the email adresses for these users than ?
