when an author wants to login, there's a 'Login' entry at the top of the Extensions page.

Clicking this entry brings to a page where one has to click 'Login' once again using a 'Login' button:
Well, I did say I want to login. Why on earth have I to repeat it?

I'd suggest that the first 'Login' entry directly leads to the actual login page ( This woul make a clearer and simpler UI.

due to the interaction with saml and the need to create proper session/a login form not so easy to fix.

Rendering the login form on every page visit seems excessive, only solution I can think of right now is to have a auto-click handler that presses the login button for you....

at least changed the link to the manage extension area now.., so at least after hitting the login link and being sent to the SSO portal, after coming back you should be in the right place...

i'll give it a spin on the test VM, but honestly I think it is not really worth the effort
