Looks like Dan Libby posted a [Wikitech-l] MediaWiki OpenID patch. I’ll have to give it a spin after I get done with my current project.
I haven’t had a chance to update things on Spectaclar or engage in a while, but I’ve at least updated the Spectaclar news feed with some interesting things I’ve culled from the past month of backed up blog entries. I won’t be very active on Spectaclar stuff for a little while longer, as I’m working on a voting plugin I plan to deploy on Electowiki
It’s still pretty rough around the edges, but now there’s a patch to add OpenID authentication support to Bugzilla. It’s not ideal, as it still requires you to go through the email ping-pong process, but the good news is that once you tie an OpenID identifier to your BZ account, you can authenticate via your OpenID account and not have to maintain a separate password for BZ.
