It seems that the OpenID log in choice has completely disappeared from the https://sourceforge.net/account/login.php page.

    We are investigating the possibility of phasing out the OpenID login (to later be replaced with Facebook/Twitter/Google+ login), but in the meantime, you can still access the OpenID login functionality via https://sourceforge.net/account/login.php?openid

    Let me know if this helps. And if you have any feedback on this, I am compiling that for our teams to help with making our decisions on where this goes.

      Well, where is the social login replacement now? Why was it necessary to remove OpenID support before social site login was avaialable?

    OpenID login is very useful. Please don't kill it.

    I personally dislike giving information about my logins to the big data harvesters like Google or Facebook. So a phrased out OpenID login would not be an option to me if I can't use my own provider.

    SF still uses Google Ads services that potentially give out much more info about your realtime behavior that simple a login action that you do once a month.

    Just for reference, OpenID hatch - https://sourceforge.net/account/login.php?openid=true

    FWIW, I agree with the above preference for OpenID.

    OpenID login is now impossible, without alternative. This is a big step back. This is silly, Sourceforge.

    OpenID logins are deprecated!
    You must log in with a username & password
    ...
    If your email address is not up to date, log in once with OpenID and change your password. This option will not be available long.

    This is awful. Silly, indeed. Not so much for me - given I maintain a repo here, I thought it proper to register with an email - but for "hit & run" bugposters: when I'm in that role, and it's some other site, I usually wouldn't post, unless I see OpenID option; registering with a site for just some small bug report is never worth the trouble for me.

    OpenID is deprecated for now. We are planning on Social Auth at some point in the future but there is no timeline yet.

    I'm glad you took the time to explain your reasoning so clearly. You guys are so professional!

    Dropping OpenID is a huge loss to me. Like @sdaau creating (yet another) internet account for trivial things like bug reports has become a huge burden and I won't do it anymore. I am sick and tired of creating accounts with user names and passwords (which I have to maintain and track and which increase my attack surface) all over the net.

    Since I have no repo here, my response is to delete my SF account altogether, partly in protest, and partly because it's of no value to me.
