We are trying to make access to the FreeIPA wiki easier and allow
contributions without addition overhead. In the past to make any change
to wiki one had to have a special wiki account. The procedure of
creating such account was cumbersome. We added support for OpenID. Among
available providers we selected to support Fedora accounting system at
least for now. OpenID configuration allows other providers like Google
or Yahoo but we were concerned that trusting them might allow spam bots
to connect and pollute the wiki. May be we are over cautious and we
should open up to those providers? We are seeking advice from you on
what is better.
Right now it does not allow logins with old accounts any more, only with
OpenID. Unfortunately it is all of nothing. But we do not want people
that had accounts and were able to contribute in the past but do not
have Fedora account to loose ability to contribute.
Any ideas and suggestions welcome!

Thank you,
