local-openid 0.4.1 - update URLs and stuff / 2016-05-01 08:15 UTC

I have no idea which websites still support OpenID at all,
probably not many :<   So I haven't actually tested this
release, it's just a release to update the public email
so interested parties can contact each other.

Please test and let me know if it does or doesn't work and
I'll see about fixing it for you.

Anyways, librelist seems to have stopped working, and I
should've migrated off it when rsync became unavailable;
but oh well, the archives and code running
are completely clonable and free.

This was my first shot at fighting the centralized, "modern"
web back in 2009; public-inbox is my latest, so might as well
tie them together by setting up a public inbox for this
more-or-less obsolete project.

Thanks to the EFF and Let's Encrypt, the website is available
over HTTPS (HTTP remains available for ancient systems):

      git clone git://

mail archives:
      git clone --mirror

There'll probably be Tor .onion hidden service mirrors coming,

local-openid 0.4.0 - non-standard ports and schemes / 2013-03-12 07:45 UTC

We now support exposing instances to OpenID consumers on non-standard
ports and non-HTTP schemes.  This feature is contingent on your OpenID
consumer supporting these, too.

Thanks to Nathan Paul Simons for sending an early implementation
of this feature.

local-openid 0.3.0 - compatibility improvements / 2012-07-01 08:28 UTC

This release brings a major compatibility improvement
from Lionel Elie Mamane:

  The OpenID provider identifier and user identifier are now
  distinct and compliant with the OpenID 2.0 specification.

  The user identifier is unchanged: http://${HOST}/
  The provider identifier (and provider endpoint URL) is now

If you were not able to get local-openid working with a certain site in
the past, this version may work for you.  Please report any
compatibility problems to and hopefully
somebody can help.  Unreported issues can never be fixed.

The Sinatra dependency is relaxed to allow any 1.x version
(tested with 1.3.2 and 1.0.0).

local-openid 0.2.0 - repackaged / 2010-06-26 08:49 UTC

local-openid is now a modular Sinatra application.  The RubyGems
installation is fixed up so the "local-openid" runner works
out-of-the-box.  There are also documentation improvements
and a new mailing list at
