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. Jürgen -- Jürgen E.
