SourceForge + OpenID: Making it happen 1

Last week SourceForge quietly added support for OpenID to their site. The news is official now.

SourceForge implemented relying party support (as opposed to just being a provider) which is a trend not often seen by larger players. I wanted to talk with one of their developers to see what it took to make this all happen, especially in a large organization like SourceForge. I spoke with Luke Crouch who was the lead developer on the project.

In this podcast I try to cover some of the questions that large sites have to consider when adopting OpenID as well as ask a bit about the future for open technologies at SourceForge. Hope you enjoy it.
