> In the context of what is already present on the website, adding mapsme-provided emails to me are good, since we get these only from facebook and google.

If the user already has a Facebook or Google account, can they use that to log in instead? I think we already support both of those.

> And from OSM, when #1431 is merged. Are there any other outstanding issues?

I would be against merging #1431. And, to be honest, against merging this PR as well. I don't understand the need for this as an alternative to the existing providers, and I worry that this is part of an effort to hide OSM rather than welcome new users into the community.

If people want to contribute fixes without being part of the community, then do we need to think about ways to stage anonymous "suggested edits" for community members to verify and "adopt" as their own?
