Hi Marc

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 the foundation's servers, the data is 
available to all, 

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 of 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.
