Hi Marc,

I would like to work on earlier idea and i need to clarify that implementing plug-able authentication for pma removed from gsoc project idea page because,
1. pma doesn't want that feature or
2. it's a useful feature but not suitable as gsoc project.

If the reason is second one, I would like to work on that(not as a gsoc project).

Thank you.

Indeed, those are two different ideas. In the previous version of the
ideas page, the idea was about supporting MySQL 5.5 Pluggable
authentication [0]. But this was removed because at the team meeting, we
decided against adding new features during GSoC 2012.

The new idea is about converting the existing plugin code of various
subsystems of phpMyAdmin, to a unique plugin interface.
