We discussed this a few years ago! We decided that it was not up to us
to dictate what hosting upstream projects use, and have left it up to
developers of those projects. We have talked about getting some kind of
syncing setup so we have things also at fedorahosted for those projects
that desire it, but we don't have that in place currently. 

It is sad that github doesn't support openid. ;(

Yes, if you can, or possibly wait and see if Pierre can just look into
the issue now that you have noted it.
