OpenID and CLA

Just doing some thinking ...

If we want to move our OpenID acceptance outside of Fedora's OpenID
server, we'll have a blocker with the CLA.  AIUI, we need someone to
knowingly accept the CLA and have that tied to a Real Name and email
address in our database.  Right?

However, OpenID could be a good way to get permissions to Talk: pages.
That is a great way to get feedback from drive-bys, the kind of people
who might take advantage of an OpenID to make a minor change on a

Content in Talk: could be treated procedurally as we do bug reports.
Maybe we can have a WikiLicense type of thing (FedoraProject:Copyrights
link enough?) for that?  Either way, Talk: could be a discussion area,
cf. mailing lists and bugzilla, that may produce content.  If someone
gives specific wording and we want to use it, and now or later modify
it, redistribute it, etc., it needs to be under the CLA and site
license.  This is comparable to receiving a patch via bugzilla where the
contributor should include licensing text.
