know this guy. So, whether it was originally Jolla's idea that Alberto
could work on this, or Canonical's, I don't know...
That's correct. In Canonical I simply continued doing what I was doing
in Nokia, along with other ex-Nokians working at Intel (for Tizen). :-)
Some time ago Tizen plans about Qt changed, and they rewrote signond
using GLib+GObject, and unfortunately a few API-incompatible changes
also sneaked in during the process.
Also Jolla picked up the software at the same time as Canonical did, but
initially they didn't contribute much, most likely because the existing
implementation was working just fine for them. Chris Adams (chriadam in
IRC) from Jolla is now very active on it.
KDE has also decided to adopt the technology, though they haven't
implemented it yet.
You can find us on IRC (freenode), on the #accounts-sso channel. Chris
is probably on holidays now, but for anything Jolla-specific you can ask
Valerio (VDVsx). For all the rest you're welcome to ping me (mardy).
But the updates I've read said that gSSO was implemented, but
was not. Was just wondering whether it would happen anytime soon, or if
volunteers were needed, or whatever.
Both are implemented, but the UOA branch is still not merged into
master. You can surely help with testing, because my testing was not
extensive at all.

For now, I think I can fairly safely assume the system is the same or
close enough (just perhaps different UI, which doesn't matter).
Yes, the UI is different, but the APIs are just the same.
