The CII mailing list service is expected to soon switch to the “Linux Foundation Single Sign-on (SSO)” system
for logging in to the mailing list service. This is part of an LF effort to have *one* strong authentication service
for all LF work, so that people don’t need an endless numbers of accounts for LF work.
If you just receive emails, or you already use the LF SSO, then
there’ll be no change. Otherwise, when this change happens, you’ll need to do a
one-time account creation with the new LF SSO service. It should be very easy.
