Salvo does not require it. As part of the "aware workbench" concept we

capability to register an eclipse account is good stuff.
I suppose this plug-in will be independent of Salvo then? Might it be
worthwhile to investigate if this can be added to Mylyn's Bugzilla UI.
And later refactored into a common plug-in used by both Mylyn and Salvo?

Just thinking...

Some additional thoughts:

It would be pretty easy, I think, to create a (remote) service that managed Eclipse.org bugzilla, newsgroup, and/or eclipse.org committer portal accounts...and have the client implementation of this remote service use/be built upon the contribution by Pavel Samilosov to expose xml-rpc services as ECF remote services (in bundle/project org.eclipse.ecf.remoteservice.rpc...which depends upon org.apache.xmlrpc).

Just thinking also...there's a lot of existing work (and expertise) here that may be brought to bear...and doing so in a general way (e.g. as OSGi service/remote service...as opposed to within Eclipse UI only) will likely bring dividends...like easy integration with Mylyn, server-based usage, RCP-app usage, etc.
