Hi, thank you for the info.

This is great. Unfortunatly, we can't use it right now since we are using
Drupal 6 for ubunut-be.org. I really hope there is plan to port these
additional features to Drupal 6. However, OpenID identification at
ubuntu-be.org using launchpad account alredy works, even if you still need
to register at first login. to create an account.

> Hey,
> We've released a couple of Drupal modules that let a Drupal site use
> Launchpad to authenticate users and also to assign Drupal roles based
> on a person's Launchpad team memberships. Here's what I posted to the
> blog about it:
> Today we're releasing two modules for Drupal 5.x under the AGPL:
>     * openid-launchpad: delegate your Drupal site's user
> authentication to Launchpad
>     * openid-teams: assign Drupal roles to logged-in users based on
> their membership of specific Launchpad teams.
> Using these modules, you can create a Drupal site that makes use of
> each person's participation in your community, as reflected in
> Launchpad. For example, if you want to allow only members of a core
> development team to post release announcements to your project website
> all you need do is create a Drupal role with those permissions and
> then assign it to the Launchpad team of your project's developers.
> The Ubuntu Fridge news site is one of the first sites to use the
> modules. It passes user authentication to Launchpad and also grants an
> editor role to members of the Ubuntu Fridge Editors team in Launchpad.
> To use the modules you'll need to be running Drupal 5.x and also be
> using our modified version of the Drupal OpenID module (GPL). Full
> setup details are available in our help guide.
> There's more about both modules and you can report any bugs in
> Launchpad (openid-teams and openid-launchpad). If you use either of
> the modules, let us know how you get on!
