Ubuntu SSO improved experience logging in to sites with OpenID

Anyone who uses the OpenID service on Ubuntu SSO (or Launchpad) to log in to sites on the Internet will know that we currently only send your username unless the site is registered with us. This makes logging in with Ubuntu SSO using OpenID less-than-great if the site needs your name or email address, for instance, to create an account for you. Next week we’re rolling out an update which removes this restriction and gives you control over which personal data you want to share.

I’ve personally wanted this feature for a while so it’s great to see it finally land.
