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

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)
