We introduced this 4 day gap as a way to reduce the Wikispam we got.

Single sign on was discussed a couple of times, but I think no one ever
got their head around sorting it given the large number of disparate
system we run. Also the pressure of misery caused by multiple logins was
never very high given the fact that only a few of us are on all subsites
active. But I am sure, Troy will be delighted to hear to your
suggestions how to solve this anyway.

Logins we use and need:

Bugs database
News database
Shell access
SVN access
Community website
Website translators
SwordWeb translators
Tomcat various admin functions

probably more if you think about.
