[OpenID board] Members Login broken

Seems there are a couple of questions to answer with login at OpenID.net:

1.       What will work the best consistently for all our existing and new potential members (intuitive, reliable, inclusive, cost effective, etc.).  Seems everyone is in favor anything that achieves these objectives.

2.       How important is it that login is neutral (not favoring any OP, not provided by any vendor).  There has been discussion on both sides of this topic, not only for login but for the OpenID wiki (currently at pbwiki), OpenID.net on Wordpress, hosting documents at Google docs, etc.

3.       How much are we willing to spend to fix it and keep it operating properly.  The current estimate that is on the table from Refresh Media is that it will take $1500 to $2000 to fix the original generic type in box UX to accommodate i-names and directed identity.

Given that there appears to be a diversity of opinion, would it be worthwhile to use our polling tool to allow the membership to weigh in?  If not, we can just give the green light to Refresh Media to get started.

Member Login is working for me at present.

Also, I vote that we keep RPX if it makes financial sense to do so.

RPX works (Eddy's case as an exception), and when RPX doesn't work -- there's somebody whose job it is to only worry about RPX.  Case in point, if this was an RPX issue, then it wasn't an issue for very long, because somebody was on top of it, and fixed it.

IMHO, the foundation has other things to worry about than making sure the website technology is working properly.  We should be paying people to do that for core/key technology where volunteer help is either too slow, or non-existent.

Let's let the OpenID community members concentrate on spec-writing.

My $0.02.

Members Login seems to be broken again, at least for me:

https://openid.net/foundation/members/members returns

"There was an error looking up your OpenID"

...besides that, I thought that we are giving up on RPX once the votes for the board are over. What happened with that?
