I was able to enable google+ and facebook login in my forked askbot site. However I'm a little bit surprised that when logging in with these services, I'm asked a "valid email address".

I see the following unexpected behavior:

  1. the email provided by the external authentication is not used. I would use that email, which is already verified by the external service.
  2. askbot does ask for an email address but it does not verify it
  3. I would like an user to have multiple access methods. If an user which already has a password uses google+ for login, askbot should be able to understand it is the same user. Now it is not possible to provide an already used email address.

Do you have any advice on this issues? I would like to contribute solving them. Any suggestion is welcome!
