I take that as a rather clear vote to go for MozTrap instead of Litmus. Can
anyone who was in the call shortly confirm that? If so, we should:

- close https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=47660
- modify https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=47658 to say "OpenID for MozTrap"
- add an EasyHack "Setup an productive MozTrap instance with the TDF admin team"

So, should I go for that?
