Hi Friedrich, I put back the bit about redirecting users to their
personal details because that does not seem to be implemented. If
you create a new account and try to use it on CKAN, the first thing
you see is http://ckan.net/user whereas you should see
http://ckan.net/user/edit (perhaps similarly for login as opposed
account creation as it is more or less the same process... though once
you have filled out personal details you should be sent back to
wherever you were when you tried to log in. See what I mean? e.g. I
try to edit a package, realise I'm not loggind in, log in, then have
to remember where I was... this is maybe a different useability
