Debian single sigon can now use Alioth credentials

Recommended Posts




https://sso.debian.org/sso/login can now use Alioth credentials on the

Alioth login form!


What this means in practice:

- You can go to https://contributors.debian.org, click "login" and it

works. If someone adds you as an admin for a data source, you can

manage it like any other DD. This means that you can fully take care

of the data source for your team even if you are not a DD: you only

need a DD to create the data source and add you as an admin.

- You can see more details in your personal page on



That's it for now, but this unlocks implementing more: next in the todo

list is a personal preferences page, where you can control what is

visible of your contributions, and claim email addresses as belonging to

you. Stay tuned for another announcement in a few weeks.


nm.debian.org does not currently accept Alioth credentials. It will, but

before that happens I need to do a complete code review and add unit

tests to make sure the authorisation code is doing the right thing.


This is also paving the way for adding non-DD access to web services in

Debian, like the spam review interface, optional non-anonymous

contributions to debtags.debian.net, and who knows what the future has

in store. What has been unthinkable for years has now become thinkable.
