I was excited when AskLibo started, only to find that OpenId is required
for using it.  And the OpenId providers advertised all have impressive
terms of use, "impressive" as in "long and daunting".

What if BrowserID was added (or replaced OpenID)?

The first couple of pages about BrowserID that I found do not suggest
that I would have to understand any legalese.  That sounds good.

Is this easy to implement?  I have not heard that anybody else is
worried by OpenID, and I cannot realistically expect that my
contributions will be worth awfully much.


Perhaps the convenience of using OpenID is what makes it better for general use. I don't know if implementing BrowserID along with OpenID is possible (most things are possible). We have also talked about perhaps hosting our own OpenID, then people would be able to register with TDF/LibreOffice and log in with this ID. But this is still an ongoing discussion.

As for your statement re: your contributions not being worth awfully much, if people are responding to your posts then you are being listened to. Other LibreOffice members are not on the lists every day and will eventually read your posts. But yes, posts are read and picked up for a response where people can add to the discussion.

Your contributions are appreciated.
