History[edit]

In the past, wiki account creation was free for anyone. Once created, the user was able to edit and add pages at will. This caused a lot of spam appearing on the wiki.

We enabled OpenID, but that stopped working around 2015 as the service became unsupported.

Currently a wiki admin approves new accounts. We are looking for automatic login, without requiring an admin to approve accounts.

Limitations[edit]

Current login does not have OSE Contributor Agreement. People need to sign one, in order to protect both contributors and OSE on legal grounds of IP law. In the OSE signup process, the Contributor Agreement must be addressed. Further, sign-up is a good place to invite people to join as OSE Developers.
