SSO would be one thing (ie login on one site, be logged in on all sites)
but that requires stuff like CAS which is a bit complicated.
Unified login/pass would be nice, and could be achieved by an ldap
directory. A branch with user accounts/login/pass,and groups for each
service : user B is in groups wiki/goodies, he can edit those, user C is
only in group transifex - he's "just" a translator..; dokuwiki speaks ldap
fine, i suppose transifex does, the release manager could too..
Starting with the next release of ssh, you can even pull the ssh keys for
authorizedKeys from an external source (ie, even an ldap!)
