We aim to solve this by using a single backend for as many of the tools
available to users, at minimum:
-mailing list subscription management
If we develop other web apps, e.g. one for browsing packages etc. (for both
packagers and users, integrating the type of information that was available
for Mandriva at maint.mandriva.com, youri.zarb.org/demo/mandriva, build system
output etc.), most likely it will use the same account infrastructure.
I would also look at other SSO technologies (e.g. OpenID) running on this
backend to possibly allow Mageia identities to be used for authenticating to
other (e.g. upstream) projects.
See some more info at http://mageia.org/wiki/doku.php?id=directory
I have finished some of the work that was holding this up, so we may be able
to make this available in a week or two.
