This is the first of (perhaps) some more emails about the new wiki system
I'm installing and where I'd like to solicit your input

To be able to edit wiki pages by means of the usual web interface, you
need to be logged in to the system.

For one, ikiwiki supports the usual (username, password) combo for
logging in.  Yet another username and password to remember.  Or
alternatively have your browser remember it for you if you trust that

An idea of mine is to also recognize if someone is logged in to
Savannah's web services and as well use that as an indicator whether he
is logged in to the wiki.  But that needs to be implemented first, and is
a long-term goal.

Now, ikiwiki also supports OpenID for logging in, see
<http://ikiwiki.info/plugins/openid/>, <http://openid.net/>,
<https://www.myopenid.com/>.  Does someone have any experiences with that
service?  I just read a bit about it.  It sounds very powerful.  And it
sounds a bit dangerous as well.  So, do we want to use it?  Do we want to
forbid using it?
