I haven't looked at the code in this revision (or any of the mpwa  
code, really), but this is going to be a part of the MacPorts web  
site, yes? I think we should therefore be thinking about how we can  
create a single login system that works for every part of the site --  
issue tracker, mpwa, news items, and anything else we might have. I'm  
not familiar with WordPres or Trac setup so I don't know what options  
are available. I know that I personally dislike the type of login we  
currently have for Trac -- that browser alert box. It's ugly. I much  
prefer login forms on web pages, since you can make them look pretty.

So... have we given any thought to how to make every part of the  
MacPorts web site recognize a global login?
