After finally reaching Patrick, I found out that Fedora still supports
plain OpenID and it was likely just some interim error. I thus reverted
the patch for simple password login and re-enabled OpenID logins again.

Still, current situation with FreeIPA.org mediawiki version stays, we
will be unable to upgrade the wiki or most of it's plugins until we move
to a newer OpenShift instance.
