I think that we want the authentication mechanisms to be add-on modules and keep the core pretty lean. For instance, we will be moving the OpenID authentication mechanism into an add-on module.
However, exactly what is in the module might change over time

Write me up then......

@Sam: Did you talk with Sigurd about moving OpenID into an add-on module? We could get 5,000$ if it is in the core (I talked with Sigurd about that -> http://openid.net/foundation/bounty/).
"Distribute the implementation as part of the projectÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s core (it cannot be an additional download or patch)."

I don't see it as a problem however, if we include it as a module in the default distribution.

Should be OK if it's distributed with the default distribution - that's the core in my opinion.

We could have a checkbox, "include open-id", in the installer, which would disable/enable the module.

Great idea Sam! But I would name it "Enable OpenID" since it's always included.

Ok. I would have it ticked by default.
The whole point is to reward projects that are increasing OpenID adoption, which for the record, I think increasing OpenID is a very good thing. Its a good technology but its heavily dependant on adoption for it to be useful, and we can feel good by being a part of the process.
