Hi Yuri,

The actual login page is http://HOSTNAME/cgi/users/login you could
include this link for people who want to login using local login.
 However, must the links that require you to login will still always
redirect to shibboleth, so you will have to instruct you local uses
that they must click on the local login to ensure they are logged in
before trying to use any of the logged in user functionality, 

You might want to do something clever with the login link to ensure the
user gets returned to the same page they were on before they realised
they need to login.  I am not sure how to do this off the top of my
