|Open||None||T124690 Successful pilot of Discourse on https://discourse.wmflabs.org/ as an alternative to wikimedia-l mailinglist|
|Declined||None||T125107 Problem creating an account at https://discourse.wmflabs.org/|
Ideally discourse.wmflabs.org should be working with Wikimedia single-signon (SSO) credentials, apart from the specific problem listed here. Detailed instructions are here and I don't think it should be difficult. This way users could sign in with their Wikimedia credentials. What do you think?
It looks lie SSO won't just be some configuration, it will require some engineering effort. I can look into what caused the failure to create an account, but need more details about the failure. To start off with, what step did the failure occur at, and what was the indication that it failed? Were there any error messages?
@AdHuikeshoven: Can you provide more information?:
Setting task status to "stalled" as I cannot reproduce. After registering I got

I clicked that link and got
Welcome to Wikimedia Discourse!

After I clicked I got redirected to https://discourse.wmflabs.org/top/all
Hence seems to work?
