Yeah, openid is the way to go for now.  The WordPress auth module is from
before we had reliable openid and the ability to check your groups from
openid.  (That is available via an extension to openid now).

But to pause for one moment - do either of these apps have a goal of
running on fedora infrastructure?  If so you should know that all of our
own apps that we have to do maintenance on are written in python with a
distinct preference for the flask and pyramid web frameworks.  We run some
third party apps, well maintained upstream, written in php.  And we do not
run any java or ruby apps (the latter we might be able to start using under
similar rules to our third party php apps once we get rid of puppet
(migration to ansible is happening but slowly)).  No idea what it would
take for us to run java apps.
