Should be.  There are plugins for redmine to do this (github at least; also
oauth) - but we didn't have enough time in Essen to get them to fly after the
migration and people wanted to start working on tickets - and this wasn't
revisited AFAIK after we put the new instance into production.

BTW osgeoids are not required for redmine - you can register directly, but for
uploading plugins you need one (and if you don't already have one the mantra;
which you get quickly if you use a mail address that suggest that it's real and
that you will not spam - for gmail.com, hotmail etc. we first try to establish
that the person is real - so that might take longer).  Recently we had two
redmine tickets issued by (a) spammer(s).

While I agree that the mantra could be a large enough obstacle to turn people
away from filing tickets (hence it's not used there), I don't think the same
applies for plugins.
