There is a branded page for this, which is linked from the
opensuse.org pages:

https://secure-www.novell.com/selfreg/jsp/createOpenSuseAccount.jsp?%22https://build.opensuse.org/%22

Just not from bugzilla.novell.com, more or less obviously.

Add two more:

openSUSE wiki:
1) http://en.opensuse.org/Main_Page
2) click on "Sign up"
3)
https://login.novell.com/nidp/idff/sso?id=6&sid=4&option=credential&sid=4
4) click on "Create Account"
5) shortly you see:
http://www.suse.com/company/novell_redirect.html?url=https://secure-www.novell.com/selfreg/jsp/createAccount.jsp
6) and then it is redirect to:
https://secure-www.novell.com/selfreg/jsp/createAccount.jsp

Problems:
1) Novell customer account page.
2) Click on "Sign up" leads to another Login page.
3) Too many clicks and reading to reach final destination: Sign up (or
Register page)

Forums:
1) http://forums.opensuse.org/forum.php
2) click "Register|Login" (single link, unlike wiki)
3)
https://login.novell.com/nidp/idff/sso?id=6&sid=12&option=credential&sid=12
4) click on "Create Account"
5) shortly you see:
http://www.suse.com/company/novell_redirect.html?url=https://secure-www.novell.com/selfreg/jsp/createAccount.jsp
6) https://secure-www.novell.com/selfreg/jsp/createAccount.jsp

Problems:
Same as wiki.


Next two will lead to correct page, but after some walk around:

openFATE:
1) https://features.opensuse.org/
2) Sign up
3)
https://features.opensuse.org/ICSLogin/?%22https://features.opensuse.org/%22
4) Sign up
5)
https://secure-www.novell.com/selfreg/jsp/createOpenSuseAccount.jsp?login=Sign+up

Problems:
1) Correct page, but I don't see return link like in your example. I
don't want to create another account to check where leads "create
login" button, but most likely nowhere.
2) To get form one needs too many clicks and reading. It is 2012, users
are not as patient as they were few years ago.

Connect:
1) http://connect.opensuse.org/
2) Sign up
3)
https://connect.opensuse.org/ICSLogin/?%22https://connect.opensuse.org//%22
4) Sign up (again)
5)
https://secure-www.novell.com/selfreg/jsp/createOpenSuseAccount.jsp?login=Sign+up

Problems:
Same as openFATE

Even correct signup form:
https://secure-www.novell.com/selfreg/jsp/createOpenSuseAccount.jsp?
is too heavy for Forum users.
Forums don't need more safety then Facebook, but that is not valid for
Build Service. Same level of security to access Forums and Build
Service will not work in a long run.

There is mess in the sidebar links. I checked briefly and, at least
some, end at:
https://secure-www.novell.com/selfreg/jsp/createAccount.jsp

I hope that someone else have easier way to check links then click
and copy paste URLs into email, and will analyze paths of our user
registration precess.
