I see above the discussions about OpenID and / or using another site to authenticate. I tried with GitHub and it *seems* to work, but my "Profile" is blank prompting me to connect my PAUSE account. Clicking the link prompts for my PAUSE id, which I dutifully enter and then it says it sent an email to my PAUSE address (presumably PAUSEid@cpan.org, which I have setup in PAUSE to forward to my *real* email) but I never get it. Testing shows that emails sent to my PAUSEid@cpan.org do in fact get to me and I always receive the automated emails from PAUSE, i.e., uploads, site activity, RT, etc.
I've opened a case with MetaCPAN.
Anyone else got this to work?
