    central user management (single sign-on)

    We could use the forum user data to to create a central user directory. This could be used by the Wiki and the new addon side. So you need to register only once and can use your login data on all other subsites of miranda-im.org (Signle Sign-on)

    ToDo
    • checking out the possibilities we have for this idea

    "easy" is no possibility, it describes only the amount of work...

    Also we need to handle authorization (we can't use the privileges from the forum...) that needs to be linked to authentication.

    But what are your opinions about that idea in general?

    The less logins the better, that is obvious. Can you pull it off or not it's a different question.

    In my mind it would be most beneficial to have gmail account integration (Bug tracker is there). This way you will not have to guess that wishmaster and FreakTheMighty is the same person, and that would be very useful.

    There is this OpenID thing that all providers we care (Google, Sourceforge) use. Maybe use it.

    Around the time of previous release the vBulletin team said they intend to extend Facebook login to Google and others in the future. That won't solve the issue of different user names, though, as it's just login (at least for existing members).
