Hi Udit

I am Udit Sajjanhar from IIT Kharagpur, India.

I am working on implementing openid login into the

That is great, nice to have you on board!

A public version of my gsoc proposal is available @

Reading through your proposal I wasn't able to read about how
the openID capabilities can coexist with the currently used
iChain login mechanism in OBS.

I think it would make sense if one could link the current iChain
account and one or more openID accounts so that alternative
use is possible.

Have you thought about that?

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
new system.

This would break as long not all other systems would also accept openID at
the same point of time.
