Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I love the whole OpenID/Google/Yahoo/AOL login system of Stack Overflow.

Are there any plans to open this component, and the backing code for authentication, up to the public? You talked about carving out the useful components of SO, like OpenID and markdown++, for open source distribution on the podcast.

Your OpenID implementation is quite slick and I could see it benefiting the community.
