OpenID is a foundation and yes, it does provide traffic statistics to
its members. In our case TDF/LibreOffice could become a member that
dispenses OpenID login/passwords

The fact that it is a "Foundation" does not make it trustworthy per se ;)
Even so since the traffic generated by a TDF/LO OpenID is collected by
foundation's servers, the data is available to all, right?

I think this is the way it works. Although, the foundation TDF does 
represent all of us, collectively. Who then can you really trust any 
better than yourself?

I was referring to the OpenID Foundation, not to TDF. And I was referring to
the traffic data being available to all the OpenID members not to all TDF
members. In any case TDF does not represent me since i'm not a member and i
have not elected it's members :) I'm just a free user ;)

I guess that if I stopped trusting Mozilla I would have to switch
ALL of my online information is typed on a browser programmed by Mozilla.
Compared to that, only a small portion of the information is in the hands
Google (and that is why I deliberately don't use Chrome)

Hmmm, Mozilla makes the bulk of its operating funds from the "Google 
Search" window. So when you search from this window, I imagine that 
Google is also (with the help of the Mozilla Group) listening in on the 
search patterns of FF users.

Yes, i'm aware that any search is logged, especially if i'm logged in to my
Gmail account on any tab (which i avoid doing).
But i was referring to the browser itself. I have to believe that the
browser is not logging and sending what i type in my work's webmail or on my
website's PMs or any other information typed on the main browser window. If
i begin to doubt that, then i will enter into severe paranoia :)

Regardless of the method, there will always be a primary organism that 
will collect the login/password data. In our case, the data we collect 
would go towards making the site more accessible and more of a fruitful 
event for our users. I don't believe at this point either system is 
better or worse.

Of course having a single OpenID for all TDF sites would be a great
improvement. But it would still be yet another set of login/password to
memorize... And as i said having TDF as the primary organism gives me more
confidence than any of the existing OpenID members. But i was referring to
the concern of using a TDF OpenID on other sites and having that traffic
information shared with to all OpenID corporate members.
