Not that I'm a Board member, but, just to give my input, Option 3
sounds like the easiest and fairest to me. It would be easy to link
accounts under this proposed system, even those with different names.
I envision some sort of "global user page" that can be accessed
through any local Wiki user page with the user's accounts on all
projects listed, along with any pertinent statistics. I think the
trolling issue can be addressed by allowing some sort of "eminent
domain"; that is, users with significant contributions on a project or
projects can take over an account on a project if it is inactive/has
few contributions; the original account would be moved to an alternate
user name. Those are my two U.S. cents.

there's been some movement forward on the Single User Login (SUL) issue. I
ask the Board to review this mail carefully as this has significant long-
term implications and we need Board input to go ahead. I also ask other
developers to correct me if I misrepresent anything.
The question for the Board is: Given that we have at least two, and
possibly three, implementations where there are volunteers, which one
should we choose? To me, this seems to be a matter that could be decided
by the Board; others have said that a poll will be necessary first. Either
way is fine with me - what does the Board say?
