Could we please use the same login for the forums as for the bugs.gentoo? It would be so much easier, if when you create a forum userid, a bugs account would be created; and vise-versa.

I'd like to see this too. I'm guessing it isn't going to happen. The forums and bugs are probably on different servers,
or at least use different password systems. Unfortunate though... I've got too many online accounts/passwords to
create yet another one.

I think that would be very difficult to do as the forums and bugzilla are 2 completly different pieces of software...

It would be possible if you code your own forum but to include this in phpbb ? Seems quite difficult to me :)

As the other respondants have mentioned, not only do forums.gentoo.org and bugs.gentoo.org reside on two different servers (in two different states, no less) but they use two entirely separate authentication databases.

So, while nothing is impossible, don't hold your breath. :)
