I'm afraid I don't understand the question, but that may be because  
I'm on the periphery of our support.

This page is very simple, but might answer some questions: https://help.launchpad.net/YourAccount/OpenID 

For example, my Launchpad openid is https://launchpad.net/~gary .

If this doesn't help, let me know, and I'll pass the question along to  
someone more knowledgeable.
