Description

Hiya!

A small feature request for you: when an account is created on one of the jQ web sites, migrating it across to the other domains. It is a PITA to have to create an account for dev.jquery.com, jquery.com, and (now) docs.jquery.com.

i understand that synching passwords and whatnot can be problematic, but one workaround is to force users to create/maintain the account only via the the main site, and then force the data downstream to dev.*, docs.*, etc., instead of coming up with a two-way sync process. Alternately, move the authentication-related db tables to a centralized server (assuming that the underlying software supports separating tables across servers).

Same thought here. I personally think we should do what you suggest. However, this is really hard and would require hacking of all platforms we use. My suggestion is to begin porting everything over to Drupal which we already use for plugins. This is probably the most flexible tool of all the ones we use (Trac (for tickets), WordPress (for the blog), MediaWiki (for docs), and Drupal (for plugins)). I'll volunteer to help as well :). I suggest we begin with WordPress, then move to the Trac, and lastly go for MediaWiki. This may require some custom code, but that's ok.

Also, the plugins should start using the soon-to-be-released revision-control backend for SVN :)

We're mitigating this by simply not requiring accounts wherever possible.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
