Just to inform you, that Google shuts down the OpenID 2.0
service on April 20, 2015, as explained in this announcement [1].

I know that some folks use it for Gerrit authentication.

There are two pending issues in Gerrit's issue tracker [2], [3].
One tries to switch to LDAP (sucks for open source projects, obviously),
another one to GitHub's OpenID. I never tried Yahoo!, though, but rumor
has it that it sucks too.

I think that the most promising alternative would be to set up OpenID
service on TDF infrastructure.
