Hi, Folks-

As described below, the Systems Team is revamping the account sign-in 
system for our wiki.  This is a good thing, as it means you will only 
have to remember a single username and password for all W3C services. 
(It also means it will be easier for the Systems Team to maintain the 
wikis, leaving them more time to do other more important things.)

This may mean that you could have a hiccup in editing the wiki.  If this 
is the case, please let me know, and I will remedy the situation.

Following the recent migration of moinmoin to mediawiki we are now
harmonizing the authentication setup of the various W3C wiki instances.
It is more difficult to maintain multiple authentication schemes and
leads to user confusion when inconsistent across our different wikis.

On Wednesday 21 April your wiki (see list below) will be tied to the W3C
LDAP service which will simplify the user administration as you will not
have to maintain wiki users anymore (users will be kept in sync with the
participants of the linked DBWG group(s)).
Please inform your group of this migration.

[IMPORTANT] Note that as a consequence of this change:
- Users will log in using their W3C Account (which means they might get
a different wiki username than what they currently have).
- OpenID authentication will not be available anymore.
- Existing local wiki users and groups will be deleted.
