I have five households running Fedora Linux. When we have visiting family members no one seems to be able to remember their password on the local machine.

If they could log in using Facebook, Google or OpenID authentication then it would be a big help.

I used to use Free IPA, but that's a lot of work to keep running, not to mention they have to remember to reset their IPA passwords from time to time.

It's something that's been discussed before but isn't currently implemented.

It looks like you filed this bug recently:

Thanks, that's a good way to track things.

Typical for me... ask a question then within 15 minutes come up with my own answer :D Seems I always have to ask too. I figured filing with Gnome would be a good place since it would either be a PAM or GDM thing. I noticed something called pam_url in the yum repository, just haven't had time to investigate.
