Description

Authentication is part of OAuth and allows implementing "Sign in with OSM" in external tools for mappers.

However, http://api06.dev.openstreetmap.org/oauth/authenticate returns a 404 response. It would be nice to have this feature.

You seem to be confusing the correct use of OAuth (as a way of granting third parties access to the OSM site) and the way twitter abuse OAuth (as an alternative to OpenID for identifying you to third party sites).

We do the former, but not the latter, and we have no plans to change that.

Fortunately the former (which is at /oauth/authorize) is all that is needed for external mapping applications to access our API.
