Phabricator login form is confusing

Description

LDAP is Gerrit/Wikitech, not Wikimedia wikis. Wikimedia wikis are only OAuth via mediawiki.org. None of this was very clear on the login page when I created an account at phabricator.wikimedia.org.

I'm not sure whether it is better to keep this as a subtask of T862 or simply merge.

Shouldn't it also trust my email address provided by LDAP, instead of asking me to verify?

A merge is probably prudent, I hadn't seen T862. I've now commented over there.

I don't know enough about LDAP to be able to comment on this, except to say that your note probably deserves its own task. :-)

I think it's not harmful for Phabricator to verify that your email address is still operational.
