Hmm.  I just tried to sign in using github and google. In both cases,
it fails.  (Using github says unauthorized to create user, signup
disabled.  Google gives some long message about not being setup or
something.)  If there's something else I need to do besides pressing
the "Sign in with github/google" buttons, then I didn't do it.

Not a problem for me since I usually use my username and password, but
thought I'd let you know.

This came up because someone reported an issue on cmucl and I asked
them to report it on gitlab.  He doesn't have an account and didn't
see any way to create one.
