Hi

OpenID is an distributed open Single-Sign-On System targeted on forums, wikis,
weblogs etc.
Support for it in Mediawiki would be great.

A note for anyone interested in coding this: recent versions of MediaWiki have a
special "AuthPlugin" extension mechanism; for some info on what authentication
methods have already been developed, take a look at

The PHP-OpenID library that I ported from Python supports PHP4 and 5.

Also, I've never done any MediaWiki hacking, but I may take a shot at
implementing an OpenID consumer, at least a quick version for my site.

Wikitravel is now using OpenID, I don't know if it's with this patch or if Evan
Podromou did something else.

Evan wrote an excellent little extension to support it; take a look in SVN.

Rob, could you explain further, for those of us without SVN access? Has Evan
written a patch which should be submitted against this bug?

Everyone has anonymous SVN read access:

I think)

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
