I have not tried to get one myselft, but I have seen them used to log
on to gerrit.

That ship has sailed.
We _already_ require that.
The only problem now is that google is leaving the field.

'Infra' is about providing and infra-structure and insuring its
availability, not coding new features in upstream project.

Having a TDF hosted openid will not solve that issue.
and unless there is a universal single-signon method supported by all
these tools, this is just the way it is.
Solving that problem is an effort to be done upstream, in bugzilla and Moztrap


but if we seriously want a hosted system, the only thing that is know
to work is LDAP...
I'm not quite fluent in ldap, but I am under the impression that it is
not well suited to 'open public registration' kind of scheme....
