using

The Account_System can act as an OpenID provider. This functionality is currently in beta.

When trying to log on to an OpenID enabled site, give username.id.fedoraproject.org as URL. Example, if your FAS login is JohnDoe, you would enter JohnDoe.id.fedoraproject.org. On the first login, you will be taken to admin.fedoraproject.org and asked to approve the OpenID request.

feedback

OpenID still does not work for all sites. We are looking for feedback and developers to improve the code. Please leave comments on the Discussion tab.

contributing

git

git clone ssh://git.fedorahosted.org/git/fas.git

It's in fas/openid_samadhi.py

upstream

It's taken and updated from an upstream project, samadhi

ssh://git.fedorahosted.org/git/samadhi.git

It needed to be modified to work with FAS though.
