-- i'm not sure where to send this mail to.. code-devel seems out of
place but i can't find anything more fitting for this question.. there
is no "websites" list --
Yesterday mozilla introduced Persona (used to be BrowserID). More
information about that can be found here https://www.persona.org/. At
first i was - like probably quite a few others - sceptical about
another single sign-on system. I mean, we have openid already and it
does seem to work fine now that it's finally populair. However, i
personally now see persona as it's successor. It's so extremely easy
to use it.
Assumption: you are logged in with persona
Logging in on a persona enabled site is very very easy and extremely
user friendly. You get a popup which asks if you want to login or not.
If you want you simply push the sign in button and you're in! You
don't need to type in anything just to login.
Needless to say, i'm very positive about this :)
Why don't we add persona support on the KDE sites?
What would be needed for that to happen? Considering that OpenID is
already in place, adding persona must be very easy to add.
