For the records, I consider sso.debian.org as it is now, past its "best
before" date, and starting to smell quite bad.

A replacement attempt was written, but hasn't been deployed for far too

I'd love to be able to have the current SSO replaced: it's currently far
too high a barrier of access for nm.debian.org and
contributors.debian.org for non-DDs, to a point that worries me

What we replace it for, is probably not up to me to choose, although
being responsible for maintaining the two current biggest consumers of
SSO auth in Debian, I'd like it to happen sooner rather than later.
