It's not the 20 minute timeout that bothers me. It's the damn CSRF
avoiding "I am human" process that bugs the hell out of me. At least
pkgdb has a "verify login" button on each page so I'm only one click
away from really being logged in. Bodhi doesn't even pretend to
believe that I might be human, forcing me to a fresh "login" page each
and every time I follow a link from somewhere else.
