Fedora Infrastructure is now a Persona Identity Provider

As of a few minutes ago, Fedora is now running a Persona Identity Provider!

Basically, this means that as of now you do not need to create yet another account at Mozilla to authenticate with your @fedoraproject.org email address to any Persona-enabled website or web service.

This saves you from some privacy concerns (Fedora Infrastructure already has your email and data) and another password as you will sign in with your Fedora account for any Persona-enabled website.

This is one of the major new features of Federated Open Authentication provider 2.0, the next evolvement of FAS-OpenID.
I will post more info on FedOAuth soon, but just wanted to share this news item with the Fedora community.
