The login should not require a password, or at least, should use the 
global authentication system (and associated magical cookie). In 
other words, use the same credentials as the other * sites, like 
bugs and wiki.

The main question is how to make this interact with individual SVN 
credentials, but it seems possible. If not, then maybe require the 
password only for those doing SVN commits, although, hopefully this 
won't be needed.

I just commit a first attempts to solve this issue.

With this modification :

* When the apps is installed into server, the authentication method use, otherwise, the "old" way is steel used. The main problem for me is to continue to code this apps on local... if I use "exclusively" to authenticate, I can't login to the apps with my local server (as I need a TOKEN value witch I haven't, of course, into my local server).

* When the user try to login, I now check his karma according to the language he have chosen and trow an error if he haven't the good one.

Please, tell me if this first step is Ok for you.
The next is the use of the magical cookie to avoid the necessity to login.

Thankfully the magical cookie no longer exists at However, eventually will use OAuth2 so we'll be able to hook into that.

The current system is okay and has been working (sorry, I forgot about this bug 
report), but let's keep this as a reminder to implement the new system once it 
 [2012-04-13 13:30 UTC]
When OAuth2 will be implemented, I will use it.

I think we can close this bug for now.
