not a doc bug. However, may bhave doc implications, so I've put myself on the CC list.
Comment 2 Hugh Brock 2008-10-17 13:39:21 EDT
user sign-in/sign-out in oVirt is intentionally delegated to a separate single-sign-on system by default. The http username/password authentication is just a fallback for the case when a proper single-sign-on system (i.e. kerberos or a certificate management system) is not in place. Therefore I don't think we want to provide a logout button since in most cases it would make no sense to have one. To work around this for the username/password case, just close and restart your browser and log in as a different user.
