An anonymous reader writes: SourceForge.net, which is owned by the same parent company as Slashdot, just added support for OpenID so that users can now login to their accounts using it. In their announcement OpenID on SourceForge.net they say, "OpenID is getting tremendous traction and we're happy to be jumping into it. it's bringing us back in touch with fresh web (2.0) technology. as a decentralized open-source standard, it's a perfect fit for us — it allows us to streamline more user interaction and participation with our site, and hopefully more for the whole OSS community." There is also more about this on the OpenID blog where they congratulate SourceForge for, "continuing to help get OpenID in the hands of open source developers on a daily basis!"
