Problem (solved yesterday)
OpenID needs to be informed when an account is deleted or merged, which
currently UserMerge extension does.

maintainer for this, if nobody contests) two hooks
The two hooks are used in OpenID only, for the moment.
I did not yet create corresponding new hook description pages on
MediaWiki - because the hooks are currently not part of the core.
As suggested some days ago by Ryan Lane - and I support his view - such
- go/come via the core, and in consequence
- via Auth.
The two hooks should be implemented in core as
abstract public function ()
or whatever is conformity to our standards (pls. let me know). If you
choose other names, I will commit corresponding changes in OpenID and
Looking forward to your feedback,
hooks come from http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:Code/MediaWiki/89010
hooks are consumed in
P.S. The OpenID and UserMerge extensions run on MediaWiki trunk version
with recent PHP 5.3.6. Who wants to test it (URL on request)
