As discussed, I think that would be re-inventing the wheel, and as
good as our infra is, having a reliable, secure, scalable, always up,
sign-on service is way outside its scope and means.

between fedora, launchpad, yahoo, fb, blogger, wordpress, etc... there
are already plenty.
In fact it would prolly be best to recommend that people register in
their gerrit account more than one openid to protect themselves again

that is not an infra-related bug.. that is a Bugzilla 'bug'. bugzilla
does not support open-id login, and no plug-in in existence does
there are a couple of seemingly abandoned attempt, none of which are
remotely close to be usable.
