Thanks for the update, I've blogged a post to gain more exposure for
this (http://aralbalkan.com/1357) and I've asked people to star issue
17 (http://code.google.com/p/googleappengine/issues/detail?id=17). Is
this the correct issue they should be starring for this?
(It appears that the conversation on that issue has come round to the
topic on this thread.)
If not, which issue should I be asking people to star?
We're _so_ close to having OpenID support on Google App Engine that I
feel this should be a very high priority for Google (i.e., the
relative work vs. what it will mean in terms of ultimate payoff is
really high!) I know that being able to implement OpenID for the
Singularity web conference application I'm building is very important
for me personally.
And thank you so much for your work in creating the consumer
application. Once we have the redirects working, that should get
developers up and running quickly to consume OpenID in their apps.
