OpenID is nice, but not trivial as a normal login consisting of 
username/password. I do not know why we offer only OpenID.

Me either, but I thought we would like to offer userbase as their home to

See kbabels page at
We need something similar for lokalize.
How to deal with that? A userbase page (few lines, a screenshot and some 
links) and techbase page for lokalize does not leave the same mark as a page

And I really doubt that userbase is the right place to manage events or 
maintain lists for talk slides.
