it's gonna be funny when I effectively start telling people who try to sign in via GitHub "yo, your GitHub profile has a broken link, fix your stuff" hehe.

bringing order to the web, one sign in attempt at a time :P

hmm, an option available to me now is to use RelMeAuth in reverse sorta... to let a user with a "github.com/example" user profile URL to sign in via IndieAuth, if their GitHub (bi-directionally) points to a website that has IndieAuth set up.

(I would want to use this myself, but ironically I'm the only person who couldn't... because to use my own site's IndieAuth server, I have to be signed in to it, and if I'm already signed in to it, then I don't need to sign in my own website.)

[dmitshur] I like that pattern of letting people use whichever identity they happen to think of, and then using rel-me identity consolidation to determine their IndieWeb identity

[KevinMarks] to add to the Fragmentions issue about #!, I think we should similarly disallow #/ fragments as they are also often used for routing, e.g. URLs that have /#/ as a segment

if you link to the twitter intent, you get a valid rel-me link still (and an hcard) https://twitter.com/intent/follow?screen_name=kevinmarks
#
[KevinMarks]
should I change the twitter rel-me advice to say to link to that?
