Trusted roots

FAS-OpenID has a set of “trusted roots”, which contains websites which are always trusted, and thus FAS-OpenID will not show the Approve/Reject form to the user when they login to any such site.

As a policy, we will only add websites to this list which Fedora Infrastructure controls. If anyone ever ask to add a website to this list, just answer with this default message:

We only add websites we (Fedora Infrastructure) maintain to this list.

This feature was put in because it wouldn't make sense to ask for permission
to send data to the same set of servers that it already came from.

Also, if we were to add external websites, we would need to judge their
privacy policy etc.

Also, people might start complaining that we added site X but not their site,
maybe causing us "political" issues later down the road.

As a result, we do NOT add external websites.
