Can't reproduce. If I open a ticket and click the login button it takes
a second or two until all the redirection associated with OAuth has
happened and drops my right back where I was.

The size of the login link is the same size as all other links in the
top bar. If you think those should be larger, feel free to suggest a
patch to https://github.com/macports/trac.macports.org/.

We're limited by Trac's options here. While we can modify the
authentication scheme with plugins, making every page that requires
authentication a login page is somewhat more complicated. Additionally,
a lot of pages exist both without and with authentication with different
results, so this wouldn't apply.

The software that replaced Trac is Trac. I'm not sure what you are
talking about here.
