If I understand what you are saying,

You have 2 different projects in django, (in different repos) and you don't
want to have user logged in, in each site.

The *simplest* way to solve this is to configure the django.contrib.auth of
both the projects to use the same database. - And yes, it is a goddamn
database. Any number of separate projects can open connections to it.

Details about using multiple databases in projects can be found in the

you will need to define the routers and for this case, the router is just a
lambda that gives the user database if the app is django.contrib.auth.
