The attached patch was created against Redmine 2.1.4.stable and tested using Chrome 23, Firefox 16, IE9, Ruby 1.9.3 (x86_64-linux), and Rails 3.2.8

The patch adds a drop down menu on the log-in page with links to 11 different OpenID providers, as well as keeping the existing functionality of writing in your own.

In addition to the patch, I've attached a few screenshots.

It creates an additional table, open_id_providers, that contains the URL/Name information for the providers. Ostensibly, this could be expanded to allow administrators to add/remove providers from the list through the Admin menu.

Unrelated: In regard to the OP and his link to openid-selector... he's right, that no longer works with redmine 2.x -- I posted some very hacky changes to it here => (For the benefit of the OP and any future viewers of this ticket)

I realized after I posted that patch, it was a little messy as I had a file being created and removed because I had misnamed it.

I've cleaned it up a bit (attached). -- They're identical in what they do. The second one is just easier to read. :-)

It would be good for example restrict to only my own openid provider,
so I can have redmine, several web apps, and use openid for single login
via my own openid provider.
