Forums : Suggestions for Ohloh 2.0

Dear Open Hub Users,

We’re excited to announce that we will be moving the Open Hub Forum to https://community.synopsys.com/s/black-duck-open-hub. Beginning immediately, users can head over, register, get technical help and discuss issue pertinent to the Open Hub. Registered users can also subscribe to Open Hub announcements here.


On May 1, 2020, we will be freezing https://www.openhub.net/forums and users will not be able to create new discussions. If you have any questions and concerns, please email us at info@openhub.net

Automatic (or semi-automatic)

Automatic (or semi-automatic) contributors matching would be a nice feature.

Let say I am registered with the email: something@gmail.com, I also marked some commits from somethings@yahoo.com as belonging to me and created a project alias between something@yahoo.com and anotherone@yahoo.com.
The ohloh should be able, when it fetches new projects to know that if the commiter is either something@gmail.com, something@yahoo.com or anotherone@yahoo.com that it should be associated/aliased to the right user on ohloh.

It could be fully automatic or require the acceptance of the ohloh user (from a feed, automatic email, etc...). That could also be an option.
