    Integration of OpenID (openid.net) for comments and/or login.

    OpenID is a well executed and mature system, ready for adoption by large projects like WordPress.

    Proper integration, would be grand. I already use a plugin, but nothing beats official support for a key technology.

    I agree with everything mxcl says. I would just like to add that openid is currently undergoing rapid adoption:

    - many websites are adopting it
    - openid support is a P1 requirement for Firefox 3.0, due later this year

    These two things make proper openid support in wordpress a key requirement. Support means:
    1) allow openid identities to log in for commenting and other wordpress functions (including admin).

    2) be able to delegate to an openid provider so that the blog owner can use the blog url as an openid. I use a plugin for this currently.

    3) be able to function as a openid provider. This one is optional and arguably the most challenging.

    WordPress is in a unique position here to massively boost openid adoption. I beg you, make the best use of it!

    please integrate this.

    wpopenid hosted on sourceforge works pretty good for me, I'm sure other users would be thrilled to have this.

    I personally couldn't agree more - OpenID could potentially revolutionize the way blogs interoperate - WordPress should be a leader with it.

    I've registered with you, just to comment on this.
    Please, do this. Please?

    There's not really much I can say that hasn't been said already, apart from the fact that there's a 50,000USD bounty for OpenID. Come on WordPress!

    While plugins exist, something like this really needs to be built in so a multitude of installs that either don't or won't use plugins can still have OpenID enabled comment, at the very least.

    It might also be nice if I could easily use my wordpress address as an OpenID URL
