A feature I originally requested on a related bug:
Allow the openid plugin to be loaded but disabled, for its side-effect of defining IkiWiki::openiduser On various sites I have two IkiWiki instances running from the same repository: one accessible via http and only accepting openid logins, and one accessible via authenticated https and only accepting httpauth. Ideally, the https version should still pretty-print OpenIDs seen in git history.
I wonder if an option is the best approach. Maybe it would be better to simply move
userlink, and thus always support openid usernames whether the plugin is enabled or not. --Joey
OK, implemented that as 'smcv/always-openid'; if you don't think that's bloating the IkiWiki core too much, please consider merging. The poll on openid indicates fairly strong support for only accepting OpenID logins, so I think recognising OpenIDs can reasonably be considered core functionality! --smcv
