This is good to see - thanks Martin! I've been playing with the OpenID support
in Moin in both the consumer and provider senses, and this is another area
where I have patches that I might try and push upstream:
* The login form is a bit confused: the OpenID field should really stand
alone. Actually, the provision of login fields is generally a bit incoherent,
in my view.
* I found a very small issue with de-association where a piece of request API
usage wasn't migrated to the new API in Moin 1.9.
* If one wants to have user home pages under a common prefix (which isn't the
case with wiki.python.org, but is on other sites), several changes are
required to the home page detection and to the OpenID identity-serving code,
I think I've already said that it would be nice to let people have the Wiki
serve OpenID identities, but I suppose this would really only be useful if
the ambition were a bit greater around making python.org more of a common
community portal experience.
