RFE: enable account association by email for demo.kiwitcms.org #573
Description of problem
I am unable to login with GitHub using "continue with" option at demo.kiwitcms.org. I have logged before and now I am getting an error that user with my email address already exists. It is expected to exist but I expected just to login automatically using my GitHub credentials and without typing anything.
Version or commit hash (if applicable)
Steps to Reproduce
Additional info (Python traceback, logs, etc.)
This is expected behavior. Association by email can be tricky business with unwanted security implications. Since the demo is built on top of a modified docker image (using python-social-auth) where you can enable different backends, some of which may not verify emails this operation is disabled by default.
I will keep this open as an RFE because with GitHub email association should be fairly secure.
